Sept 21st, 12Noon-2:00pm — Our Time KW Organizing Meeting, Social Development Centre Waterloo Region (St John’s church), 23 Water Street North, Kitchener (streetview, map).
climate crisis is here, and as youth, we will be affected more than any
generation before us. As the largest voting bloc for the first time in
Canadian history, we also have a huge opportunity. For decades, fossil
fuel billionaires and their political allies have put people and the
planet in jeopardy. Last fall, scientists confirmed we only have until
2030 to cut our emissions in half to avoid catastrophic climate change.
Their time is over. The 2019 election is Our Time. Please register and get more details here.

Join us at the Princess Twin Cinema at 46 King Street North in Waterloo on Monday Sept 23, 2019 from 6:30-9pm for the showing of the climate documentary Beyond Crisis directed by artist-director Kai Reimer-Watts.
Beyond Crisis was started by a small team of filmmakers who rallied to film the historic 2014 People’s Climate March in New York. Shortly following the march, the team incorporated as Toronto PCM (“People’s Climate March”), and evolved a small, committed crew to carry the film forwards.
While Beyond Crisis has had contributions from a wide range of talented artists and film professionals along the way, it was carried to completion largely by volunteer efforts with artist-director Kai Reimer-Watts leading the project. The film has always been perceived as a story generated with community, for community, and is now on its way to being shared with all those who inspire it as a tool for community engagement and action.
