Mayor David Miller launches community animator program
On Thursday, April 16, Toronto Mayor David Miller will officially launch the Live Green Toronto Community Animator program. The community animators are a major component of Live Green Toronto, a program to actively engage Toronto residents in taking action on climate change.

Community animators will be available in each of the four community council districts to help residents get organized to take collective action and implement projects to green their neighbourhoods and reduce the emissions that contribute to climate change.

The launch will take place at Hugh Garner Co-operative -- a recipient of Live Green Toronto funding and an excellent example of the type of project that community animators can help residents implement in their neighbourhoods.

Date: Thursday, April 16
Time: 10:10 a.m.
Location: Hugh Garner Co-operative (550 Ontario St.) on the green roof
