A Day to Learn How to “Catch the Heat, Care for Humanity.” The past winter has already shown the roller coaster weather and how it influenced our life. Over the past 50 years, the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history, and the trend is accelerating. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is the primary driver of global warming. Our organization hope to hold the event to help people who live in Ottawa to know how to capture the heat and care for humanity.
On Saturday, August the 25th, experiential learning will be had on how by strategically placing vegetation, we can catch the heat. When building green roofs and living walls, planting trees, having in place living sculptures and expanding green spaces in the city as much as possible, we can change the ambient air by as much as two and three degrees.
Main featured activities are:
1. A public experiment using algae and water filled bottles which will demonstrate the efficiency of algae to capture CO2
2. A Maze with interactive public displays
3. Educationals with hands-on applications for residential green roofs, living walls
4. Children's place (It is a happy place for children to play and enjoy sunny weather on weekends)
5. Food concessions: We will partner with like-minded organizations to empower the community with greening the urban landscape as shown by urban gardens that will reduce families’ food budgets, provide healthy foods to their families and make their own families more food secure.
6. Sustainable fashion show: We will purposefully set out to show how natural fibres such as hemp, bamboo, recycled polyester, recycled cotton, and organic cotton are equally fashionable and affordable.
7. An after event （4:00 pm — 9:00 pm)
With all these meaningful activities, we invite you to join us on 25th August at Mooney's Bay Park! This is an excellent chance to learn by ourselves how to make our homeland green and contribute to the health and wellness for future generation. Join us, and we can fight together!
