BURLINGTONGREEN SHOWS THE LAST FILM IN THEIR 2018 ECO-FILM FESTIVAL: “TIME TO CHOOSE”

Academy Award-Winning documentary filmmaker Charles Ferguson (Inside Job, No End in Sight) turns his lens to address worldwide climate change challenges and solutions in his film ‘Time to Choose’.

Ferguson explores the comprehensive scope of the climate change crisis and examines the power of solutions already available. Through interviews with world-renowned entrepreneurs, innovators, thought leaders and brave individuals living on the front lines of climate change, Ferguson takes an in-depth look at the remarkable people working to save our planet.

Burlington, ON – On Wednesday, October 17th, BurlingtonGreen, in partnership with Burlington Central Library and Halton Green Screens, will present ‘Call of the Forest’, the fourth of five acclaimed films in their 2018 Eco-Film Festival series.

in the deep history of the land.” -E. O. Wilson, Harvard entomologist, conservationist and father of modern environmentalism

BURLINGTONGREEN AND NUVO NETWORK TO HOST ALL CANDIDATES EVENT AND MAYORAL
DEBATE

Burlington, ON – On Wednesday, October 3 rd , 2018, BurlingtonGreen and Nuvo Network are teaming up to host “Our Voice 2018” - an All Candidates Event and Mayoral Debate that will include a public meet-and-greet with Ward candidates from across the City, followed by a moderated Mayoral debate with participation from all 4 candidates.

The Meet-and-Greet component of the event will take place from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm, with the Mayoral debate to follow from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm. This is a free event open for participation and discussion on a wide-range of topics and issues that are important to the people of Burlington.

“We are pleased to be hosting this important event with Nuvo Network. BurlingtonGreen’s experience hosting the event for a previous municipal election, realized more than 300 attendees with positive feedback about how convenient it was to meet and ask questions of the many candidates at one location during a single evening. Our aim is to help the people of Burlington learn more about where candidates stand on various issues so they can make better, informed decisions when they vote”, said BurlingtonGreen Executive Director, Amy Schnurr

The dual–component event will take place at Nuvo Network (formerly Crossroads Centre) located at 1295 North Service Road, Burlington. Space for the highly anticipated event is limited, with seating available on a first-come-first-serve basis. BurlingtonGreen hosts green events encouraging attendees to carpool, use public transit, cycle, walk to and from the event.

This event is bullfrogpowered with 100% green electricity. This means that Bullfrog Power's generators put 100% green power into the grid to match the amount of conventional electricity the event uses, displacing energy from polluting sources. Across Canada, Bullfrog's green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities.
