The Latin American Mission Program (LAMP) invites P.E.I. residents to an interactive community forum entitled, Climate Change: Climate Justice “From Words to Action”.
It will be held at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish Hall, 151 Stratford Rd., Stratford, on Sunday, May 26, 1:30-4 p.m.
There is no charge for the forum. Pre-registration is preferred in order to facilitate planning. Participants are asked to pre-register before May 21 by calling Marie at 902-894-4573 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The guest speaker is Ann Wheatley, environmentalist and member of Cooper Institute.
Her topic is The Current Economic System: Generating and Denying Global Warming.
The goal of the forum is to inspire more people to make deeper and wider commitments to organized action to stop climate change at its roots.
Participants will explore the symptoms and root causes of climate change/global warming.
The forum will also attempt to encourage more people to become involved in collective, effective, organized action to stop the on-going disaster of global warming.
LAMP in its relationship with Latin America has learned directly from impoverished people, wherever they live, that they are first victims the warming of the planet. Their fragile homes, water and food supply, are under constant threat from hurricanes, floods, and wild fires which are directly caused by the warming of the earth.
