Do you know what happened in downtown Ottawa on November 29, 2015?
People gathered in downtown Ottawa on November 29, 2015 for a fun and friendly march at Parliament Hill. Attended by individuals, groups, and families, the event was held right before the UN Climate Summit in Paris, France. People were celebrating climate solutions and encouraged the Canadian government to be more proactive about climate change.
The march – 100% Possible: Marching for Climate Solutions and Justice – is just one of the many similar events organized around the globe that time. It was the flagship event in Canada and lasted for more than 3 hours at Parliament Hill, Ottawa’s seat of government.
Participants came all wearing green, the color that symbolizes renewable energy, hope, and the environment in general. Everyone got creative with what they wore to the event and there were flyers, banners, and posters all designed to encourage participation and collaboration for nature’s sake because a clean economy, especially in Canada, is 100% possible.
The city of Ottawa, barely two hours from Montreal and about 4 hours from Toronto, is easy to get to. The event was well attended because buses were available to shuttle participants to and from Ottawa. Due to the availability of transportation, more people signed up for the event, making it a huge success.
