    Fridays for Future

    Hosted by Council of Canadians, London, Ontario, Fossil Free London, Extinction Rebellion Ontario, and Lisa Birtch Carriere Green Party. See the full event information here.

    Our strike has grown! We are striking in front of London City Hall and outside the MP office every Friday from 3-5.


    Student climate strikes are gaining attention and momentum worldwide. Come see what all the fuss is about.

    In solidarity with and inspired by Greta Thunberg, we have decided to spend whatever portion of our Fridays that we can at our local MP's offices striking for Climate.

    In her words, “Even if there is no hope we have to do something. Not having hope is not an excuse for not doing anything. Of course we need hope but the one thing we need more than hope is action because once we start to act hope is everywhere.”

    Don't worry if you don't have any signs -we have some & will make more - we just need people there!

    As Greta says in her call to action;

    "Whoever you are, wherever you are, we need you now to stand outside your parliament or local government office to let them know that we demand climate action.

    Addressing world leaders as the climate conference kicked off, Thunberg said, "We have not come here to beg the world leaders to care for our future. They have ignored us in the past and they will ignore us again. We have come here to let them know that change is coming whether they like it or not. The people will rise to the challenge."

    Hawk Cliff Woods in Port Stanley, ON, Canada

    Passport to Nature: Wildflower Gardens and Butterflies

    Hosted by the Thames Talbot Land Trust

    “Just living is not enough”, said the butterfly, “One must have freedom, sunshine and a little flower” - Hans Christian Anderson

    It’s not quite that simple but the little flowers help. At Hawk Cliff we have created an accessible native wildflower garden.  Kim McCabe, landscape designer, will explain how the Auzins Wildflower Garden was designed and created.  Participants will learn how to select and grow native wildflowers that nurture our birds, butterflies and wildlife in Southwestern Ontario.  Afterwards there will be a leisurely walk to view the flowers and butterflies in the nearby meadows in the Hawk Cliff nature reserve.

    Registration is required, available on Eventbrite

    Wild Child in London, ON, Canada

    Outdoor Pedagogy: The Healing Power of Connection and Nature

    Hosted by: Strive Project and WildChild - Childreach

    Strive

    Facilitated by: Niki Buchan, Natural Learning, Early Childhood Consultant from Australia

    With a growing concern in the rise in mental health issues in even very young children, educators are increasingly looking for support in dealing with children with diagnosed and undiagnosed issues which may lead to a range of ‘challenging behaviours’ at home and in the class. Trauma, Anxiety, PTSD, Depression, ADHD are more prevalent in society than realised and currently diagnosed, educators are in a position to make a big difference in the lives of these children.

    We will explore how some mental health issues can be transferred from one generation to another, how ‘challenging behaviours’ could be the child’s way of communicating and asking for help and how adults can gently support and work towards healing these children through a combination of nature and a strong nurturing connection.

    Tickets $10, register and read more here
