Youth in a Green War supports Stonewall Youth Going Green who are meeting with their town council on May 8th. Email firstname.lastname@example.org demanding them to uphold their promise of banning single use plastic bags in support of Stonewall Youth Going Green.
WHEREAS the United Nations has declared water and sanitation as human rights in July 2010 and there still exists 174 drinking water advisories in over 100 First Nations communities
AND WHEREAS single use plastics are ending up in our oceans, polluting and killing the marine life, and being buried in our many land fills to stay there for an eternity,
AND WHEREAS our national government has signed on to the Paris Agreement which outlines targets and goals for the environment
AND WHEREAS Canada has one of the highest carbon emissions per capita in the whole world
AND WHEREAS Climate Change scientists are now recognizing the daily results of the present climate crisis,
We the undersigned members of Youth In A Green War call upon national governments to create an independent Climate Change Action agency to be funded at the same level as our military with the mandate to take immediate action to phase out fossil fuel extraction and restore all of our natural environments to a healthy state,
We the undersigned members of Youth In A Green War call upon all regional and municipal governments to enact the necessary legislation and or policies to match the European Union on their ban on unnecessary single use plastics.
On behalf of the members of Youth in a Green War, we thank everyone that has signed our petition!
Always remember, 'IF YOU ARE NOT PLAYING A ROLE IN CREATING A SOLUTION – YOU ARE AN ACTIVE PART OF THE PROBLEM!'
