Sustaining Our World

Sustaining Our World is an event the Britannia Green Team, Latin American Youth Club and the Britannia Secondary School Environment Club are hosting to celebrate green initiatives at Britannia and within our community, as well as to help raise awareness of the Zero Waste concept.

The day will begin with a Bike Parade which will lead green keeners to the Britannia Secondary School cafeteria where people can enjoy our Sustainability Fair.  With a short film viewing area featuring clips on sustainability issues, along with tables featuring amazing organizations and businesses who try to make it easy for us all to be a little greener.

Another exciting feature to the day will be the Britannia Race to Zero Waste which is for teams (2-3 people) who want to enjoy a fun way to learn about sustainability while exploring our neighbourhood. Racers will solve a series of clues and complete a few challenges highlighting all we can do to Sustain Our World and achieve a Zero Waste community.

Bonus points for teams that bring the funk and show the most keen-to-be-green team spirit!

Registration for the race is $20/team and will close Friday October 19th. You may register at Britannia Community Centre in person, by phone or online. (Registration is only required for those who choose to participate in the race.)
All ages are invited to play along and the race will be a great family activity for those with children & youth who like a good challenge! :)

The Sustaining Our World event will run from 12:00-5:00 pm on Sunday, October 21st and all are welcome to drop by any time!
Further details on the Bike Parade, Sustainability Fair, and Britannia Race to Zero Waste will be posted here soon. 
Teams who sign up for the Britannia Race to Zero Waste will be contacted prior to the day of the event with everything they will need to know for race day.
Please contact the Britannia Green Team Co-ordinator if you have any further questions.

Hope to see you there!
