Mental and Physical Health

November is Proudly Sponsored by

Our theme this month is mental and physical health. We are grateful for the partnership of Telus to help us spread our message far and wide. As we all know climate change and the science around the changes are very real. Climate leadership is so important right now- there is so much at stake at this very defining time in our worlds . All of us have very different roles to play in this however it is so important to hold our leadership accountable regardless of their term in office .

There will never be business as usual.  There will never be travel as normal. It was JFK- who said “efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction” Let that quote be a call to action for all of us.

Being firmly rooted in the present our mental and physical health are primary. We need to take care of ourselves. Our collective purpose must be to preserve, protect and save our ocean, our natural spaces, and each other.
