The Richmond Earth Day Youth Summit is going to be hosted at McMath Secondary School on April 26, 2014 from 8:30am to 12:30pm.
REaDY Summit is a fun, free, and inspiring youth led environmental conference. We aim to promote environmental sustainability awareness for all ages in the local community and beyond.
The REaDY Summit is honoured to present Dr. David Suzuki as this year's keynote speaker.
Dr. Suzuki will also answer pre-selected questions from students after his speech.
Dr. Suzuki is an award-winning scientist, author, broadcaster, and co-founder with Tara Cullis of the David Suzuki Foundation.
He is widely recognized as a world leader in sustainable ecology and has received numerous awards for his work, including a UNESCO prize for science and a United Nations Environment Program medal. He is also a Companion of the Order of Canada.
And for his support of Canada's First Nations people, Dr. Suzuki has been honoured with six names and formal adoption by two First Nations.
We offer hour-long workshops that will interest people of all ages and passions.
From Scott Sampson and his dinosaurs for the little ones, to cooking lessons with Ian Lai for those who want to hone their culinary skills. We will have a workshop for you.
Great for individuals and families alike.
This year's theme celebrates the Fraser River.
As the longest river in BC, the Fraser connects more than 2.4 million people to each other with 60% of British Columbians living along this mighty river.
The Fraser connects us to the natural environment. The river and its banks are home to many aquatic and terrestrial species, and it is one of the largest salmon spawning rivers in the world.
The Fraser River Estuary is also a key resting spot for thousands of migratory birds that travel along the Pacific flyway, one of the largest migratory flyways in the world.
Declutter your homes by bringing unwanted small household appliances, power tools, and burnt out light bulbs of all varieties (incandescent, CLF, LED, HID, and fluorescent tubes) to the Summit.
David Suzuki's Queen of Green invites two of British Columbia's leading product stewardship programs, LightRecycle and ElectroRecycle, to be on site, where they will collect and keep hazardous materials out of our landfills and waterways.
