Cumberland Community School hosting climate action barbecue

Cumberland Community School is planning an all ages climate action barbecue.

The goal of the event is to raise awareness to issues threatening the planet.

While many people sit by and watch as this happens, CCS’s hope is to change that and spark conversation about the topic.

All food at the barbecue can be purchased with a donation. The goal is to raise $500 that will be going to Be the Change Earth Alliance. This Vancouver-based organization provides school education about climate change and gives ideas of what everyone can do to help.

The event will take place at the field at Cumberland Community School on March 6, 3:30 – 5 p.m.

There will be a few speakers, though the mic will be open to anyone that has something to say about climate change. Along with this, there will be a few games around the field for anyone wanting to participate.

The event has been put together by the Community Leadership team at the school with the help of the Village of Cumberland.

For more information, contact Autumn Olenick at Cumberland Community School, 250-336-8511.
