ANNOUNCEMENT: Green Wednesdays Finale Event April 2018
The non-profit Green Ideas Network, in collaboration with the Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s School of Horticulture, is announcing their 10th Anniversary Special “Green Wednesday” on Wed., April 18th, 2018.
It is with mixed emotions that the organizers have made a decision to retire from the Green Wednesdays monthly series after a decade of educating and bringing awareness to viewers via the media of film about topics such as climate change, sustainability, agriculture, energy, pollution, conservation, consumerism and food. Films challenge viewers to consider ways in which we can make our world better.
“Since its beginnings, Green Wednesdays has explored issues pertaining to the ecological impacts of human choice on our lives, and those of generations to come. Past patrons have been inspired to start the Langley Farmer’s Market, initiate food gardens in their children’s schools and work with local councils to reduce water waste. Participants have been encouraged to share and explore ideas with their community on how we can create a more just and sustainable planet for all living species.”, says Betty Cunnin, KPU horticulture instructor and faculty support for Green Wednesdays.
The finale screening of “Plastic Paradise” will take place in the Auditorium at the Langley campus, located at 20901 Langley Bypass. Visit www.greenideasnetwork.org to view the trailer.
The 10th Anniversary Special is open to the public and will include farewell speeches, refreshments, and door prizes. Admission is by donation. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Film starts at 7:00 p.m. To help us monitor enough refreshments, please send your RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Green Ideas Network would like to acknowledge that without the following sponsors and their support, they would not have had such an amazing 10 years of success.
KPU School of Horticulture, A Bread Affair, Nature’s Fare Markets, Vancity, Ethical Bean Coffee Company, Ten Thousand Villages Langley and Bullfrog Power.
