Light the Way Toronto Vigil for a sustainable future

Thursday, September 24, 2015 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Innis Town Hall, corner of St. George and Sussex Ave., Toronto

At dusk on September 24, around the world, people are lighting the way to a sustainable future. Join in here in Toronto.

Bring your own light

Climate change disproportionately affects the most vulnerable. Let’s show how we support new Sustainable Development Goals, and the work by our City, by shining our diversity of lights, and calling for leadership at all levels of government - especially during this election.

These new Global Goals give us a chance to change history. The world is on the brink of something historic. A once in a generation setting of global goals for the future of our people and planet. They could bring an end to extreme poverty, an end to soaring inequality and the protection of people and planet from deadly climate change.

But to make this happen - we need you.

Everyone in the world needs to know about them, and every leader needs to feel our pressure. A tidal wave of humanity - demanding they become real.

We will light the way.

On September 24, the night before the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals are announced and Pope Francis speaks to the UN, tens of thousands - or even hundreds of thousands - of people around the world will stand together UNDER ONE SKY to LIGHT THE WAY to a better world. Join us and shine a light on the commitments about to be made so that the world knows about them and every world leader knows that we’ll be watching every step of the way to ensure they are met.

Supported by Canadian Interfaith Fast for the Climate, ClimateFast, OurVoices, Action/2015 and Fast for the Climate.
