Clean Air Day
Green Venture, as part of Health Canada’s nationwide effort to increase awareness about air quality, is hosting Hamilton’s Clean Air Day celebration on June 7th, 2023 at Bernie Custis Secondary School. The event will go from 4:30 – 7:00pm, featuring a keynote speaker, free food, a variety of booths/stations, and a film premiere for videos made by students who participated in our Fresh Air For Kids program’s filmmaking workshop. The event aims to celebrate all of the efforts that elementary school students across Hamilton who are in our program have put into improving their community’s air quality and level of environmental consciousness, as well as generate awareness in the broader community about the effects of poor air quality. We would love to see everyone in our community there!

Earth Day Market Repair Cafe - CANCELLED
After much deliberation with our partners at Eco Hamilton Collective, we have decided to postpone our event tomorrow due to the inclement weather.
While we were initially planning this event to be rain or shine, the high winds and heavy rainfall have created health and safety risks for the cafe which we cannot ignore.
We thank you for your interest and deeply apologize for this unfortunate turn of events.
Please note that we are actively planning a new repair cafe to be held in the summer at the Green Venture building. Keep an eye out on our social media to find out and register for the new one if you are interested in volunteering or attending! If you would like to be automatically updated on all future events, including repair cafes, you can sign up for our newsletter. Have a great weekend, and we hope to see you at the next cafe!
If you have any questions or concerns, please email our event lead Akira at firstname.lastname@example.org
