BGYN Special Guest Speaker – Rochelle Byrne

The BGYN is excited to welcome the incredible Rochelle Byrne of A Greener Future as the Guest Speaker at our upcoming drop-in BGYN meeting on Monday, March 13th on Zoom.

The meeting begins at 4:30pm (zoom link here) & everyone ages 14-24 is welcome!

Speaker Profile: Rochelle founded A Greener Future in 2014 after coordinating a shoreline cleanup in her community and deciding that one cleanup per year just wasn’t enough. The experience of picking up garbage eventually led her toward the zero-waste movement. 

Rochelle has completed eight years of environmental post-secondary education and has held several employment positions related to environmental education at Fleming College, the Riverview Park and Zoo, and the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters. 

Rochelle is the 2017 Environment Award recipient for the City of Pickering and the first person to stand up paddle 430 km across Lake Ontario, raising awareness about plastic pollution and she is excited to share her eco-journey with everyone on March 13th. No RSVP required, drop-ins welcome.
