To read about Emma's involvement please click here THE FOURTH R was selected through the Toronto City Council to participate in the mentorship program for Women4Climate. Women4Climate was an initiative made by C40; a collection of 40 city mayors coming together to take action on the climate crisis. Made to empower and inspire the next generation of climate leaders to influence the conversation through leadership events and create new momentum and interest among future leaders; and raise awareness through research on gender, cities and climate to highlight the key role women play in championing climate action in cities.
Through this six month mentorship, THE FOURTH R was developed by local and national climate professionals and experts. The long term goal for the project is to have the presentation tour every April/May for the next five years, working with schools to incorporate more climate focus into their school community. Our hope is that when a school brings THE FOURTH R to their school, they pledge to become an eco school; participating in composting programs, boomerang lunches, initiatives to encourage carpooling/biking/busing to school and celebrating or starting an eco club. If children don't learn about the importance of sustainability, how can we expect them to grow into adults that will care? To ensure success in our project, Dance Fachin promises to follow up with school bi-annually. To learn more about C40 and Women4Climate please clickhere
