Create a Climate Action Cloth at Artfest
June 24, 2014 -
Bring the family down to make "Climate Cloths" to add to hundreds of others created by students and youth for Kingston's Climate Action Clothesline. It will be on display this week at the Climate Action Centre in Artfest in City Park, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., June 28 through July 1.
"We first flew the Climate Action Clothesline in Confederation Park on Clean Air Day. It looked spectacular and really emphasized the power of community action. The wonderful individual cloths showed student participants had personalized the goal of reducing our impact on climate," says Katie Wall, Sustainable Kingston's Project and Outreach Coordinator.
What action will you take? Discover actions you can take – such as using a clothesline, walking to work or ensuring your home is energy and water-efficient – to help Kingston meet its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030 at www.CityofKingston.ca/climateaction
Created to celebrate the community-built Kingston Climate Action Plan, the Clothesline shows how individual actions taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions can generate dramatic results. Its creation was facilitated by the City and Sustainable Kingston and supported by the University of Michigan Graham Institute Great Lakes Adaptation Assessment for Cities and a grant from the Kresge Foundation.
