Social Innovation Salon: Facing Climate Change
CSI Annex, 720 Bathurst St., ING Presentation Space
Robert Shirkey, the Executive Director of Our Horizon, will discuss his organization's initiative to place warning labels on gas pump nozzles. The presentation will be followed by a lively discussion facilitated by Heather Neville, Community Animator at CSI.
The first step to surmounting any challenge is to honestly face it. This is what Our Horizon's globally-unprecedented campaign asks us to do. Our Horizon is advocating that municipalities across Canada use their licensing powers to require gasoline retailers to place warning labels on gas pump nozzles similar to those on cigarette packages. When a municipality passes this by-law, it will create a global precedent that will quickly spread all over the world. Our idea is a game-changer: it's time to face our greatest challenge.
