Achieving 100% Renewable Energy by 2050 certainly sounds like a tall task. And of course, we have a long way to go. But philosopher Lao Tzu nailed it when he said:

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” – Lao Tzu

We’ve made that first step with city council confirming their support for the goal, so…

Let’s Party like it’s 2050!
7:00pm – 8:30 Thursday June 21
Red Brick Cafe

We’ll be light on the speeches but have lots of time to celebrate a great first step!

And if that wasn’t enough – June 21 is the summer solstice. A day when solar panels across Guelph bathe in the sunlight for longer than any other day of the year.

Limited space – registration is necessary but free. Complementary light refreshments will be served.
