TORONTO, April 20 /CNW/ - Canadian Auto Workers' union environmental
activists will talk to elementary and secondary school students from coast to
coast about the causes, effects and solutions to climate change as part of its
annual Earth Day program.
Throughout a five week period centred around Earth Day on April 22, CAW
representatives will visit thousands of students and their teachers to help
identify the steps students can take to build healthy communities for
themselves and future generations.
While further educating youth about the crucial goal of maintaining a
clean environment, CAW activists will discuss the need for cleaner, greener,
sustainable jobs with an emphasis on the threat of increased global warming.
In Ontario the CAW sponsors the program in partnership with the Workers'
Health & Safety Centre. This is the eighth year the CAW has offered the
program to students across Canada. Last year the program reached more than
82,000 students from coast to coast in 730 schools.
Media are invited to contact the CAW to arrange to hear this important
presentation at a local school.
