About the 2019-2020 Earth Day Theme: “Healthy Community, Healthy Self”
What is a healthy community? Why are some doctors prescribing nature visits & art activities to increase wellness? How can volunteering and helping others also improve your personal health? How does infrastructure & environment affect physical health? How do we stay human in an ever-advancing technological world? Earth Day 2019 & 2020 explore these and other questions as we focus on the theme “Healthy Community, Healthy Self” – a theme too big to limit to one year!
Earth Day 2019: “Invest in Your Community: Focus on Mental, Social, & Economic Health”
“Someone will take care of it.” What if that someone is YOU? Join the thousands of Maple Ridge citizens who volunteer for their community, making a world of difference in so many ways. Creating a sharing economy and working on solutions to community issues such as poverty, food insecurity, and addiction builds connections and can inspire the sense of purpose sometimes needed to pull us out of our own apathy and isolation. Building a healthy community starts with YOU – giving time to your community and taking time for yourself. Join us at Memorial Peace Park in the heart of Maple Ridge on Saturday, April 13, 2019 from 10am – 2pm. More info at www.mrearthday.ca or on our Facebook Page.
