The David Suzuki Foundation is launching a new national network to offer support to citizen groups throughout the country, with tools and resources, mentoring and training, as well as inspiration.
The Future Ground Network, which is being launched on February 10, 2021, will work to create urban agriculture projects, build awareness of key environmental issues, advance sustainable transportation and promote climate actions.
The launch of the network will occur through a webinar that will feature David Suzuki and a message about local agents of change and the power of collective action.
