Students to take action at Smog Youth Forum
  
Date: Thursday, May 23

Time: 1 to 3:30 p.m.

Place: Metro Hall, 55 John St., Rooms 308 & 309

High-school students will make their actions count on issues of smog and its
impact on health. This is the first of a series of six citizens' forums taking
place from May 23 to June 11 across the city and the Greater Toronto Area.

The agenda includes an educational presentation by "Dr. Smog" Keith Stewart,
success stories, break-out groups and findings.

A citizens' panel representing the community, youth, business, education and
health fields will attend all forums. A report on the call-to-action, together
with a Citizens' Declaration on Clean Air, will be presented to government
officials during the Smog Summit on June 21.

The third annual Smog Summit brings together government, citizens and
businesses to make new commitments to advancing the smog agenda in the Greater
Toronto Area. Smog Summit 2002 is sponsored by the City of Toronto, the
Province of Ontario's Ministry of the Environment, the Government of Canada,
Enbridge Consumers Gas, Toronto Hydro, the Toronto Atmospheric Fund, the Clean
Air Partnership and the GTA Clean Air Council.
