On Saturday, April 29, 2017, Greenwich, CT will be the site of the first ever (to our knowledge) Children’s Environmental March. This is a nonpartisan event that brings together families, children and students to celebrate the Earth on the same day as the Climate March in Washington D.C. The Children’s Environmental March is a local and accessible alternative to the DC march and is tailored specifically to young people. This is not a political protest, but rather a positive and festive forum in which young people and their families will express their feelings and hopes about the future of our Planet. The tone of the event will be celebratory and fun. Prizes will be awarded for most creative posters and hats, made with natural or recycled materials and addressing environmental themes, such as Water Conservation, Clean Air, Wildlife Protection, Forest Conservation, etc. Participants can choose any theme they want, and express their views creatively.
We hope you’ll join us for this important inaugural event. The objective is to encourage young people to become more aware of and involved in environmental policy. This is the planet they will inherit, and they have the right to shape its future. The first part of the event consists of a short rally in front of Town Hall, with speakers ranging in age from very young to adult. Then we will march to the Commons Park on Greenwich Ave. for a festive conclusion, with activities, contests and prizes. The Children’s Environmental March will empower young people and give them a voice. Please join us:
