The leader of the Green Party of Canada will be the guest speaker Jan. 22 at the launch of the Denman Island Transition.

Elizabeth May, a former executive director of the Sierra Club of Canada and a resident of Sidney, will be one of several speakers to “explore ways that sustainability can be built into the daily lives of Denman Islanders,” Transition organizers say in a brief news release.

“In this time of oil shortages, increasing energy costs and climate change, many communities throughout the world are looking at ways to create sustainable, resilient communities. This process is referred to as transition,” the release adds.

“Denman Island is launching into transition with a celebration and the creation of action groups to create sustainability in our community at the Denman Island Transition launch.”

It happens Jan. 22 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Denman Island Community Hall.

For more information, call Danni at 250-335-0198.
