As part of the main EWB (Re)Connect Toronto event we decided to get ambitious and have some stretch goals. EWB is about involvement, but often the way we go about it is with fairly abstract, systems perspectives thinking that's useful but doesn't necessarily scratch the active engagement itch that's part of the human experience.
So, here are some of the Sustainable Development Goal related volunteer activities we've lined up for you. Not at all mandatory, feel free to invite friends and family to help out and make it a fun community event beyond your EWB connections!
Cancelled due to lack of uptake | Coronation Park Cleanup | Cancelled due to lack of uptake. -- For those who registered for this event we'll be in touch with alternatives!
Really Really Free Market | 9:45 - 12:15, Sat, Nov 5 | 255 Campbell Park Avenue, north of Wallace Avenue and south of Antler Street -- Really Really Free Market Toronto West End is a community that provides a collectively organized, non-monetary alternative to the current mainstream economic system. The market is an accessible welcoming space where people can meet face to face to share goods, skills and ideas. Volunteers will be helping to set up the market, organize market items and interact with Market-goers. http://rrfmarket.blogspot.ca/
Fair Trade Toronto's Just Coffee Series | 18:30 - 21:00, Thurs, Nov 3 | CSI Annex, 720 Bathurst Ave -- Our good friends at Fair Trade Toronto (an EWB Toronto spin-off!) have a fantastic Just Coffee series going on.

Rooftop Garden Work | 10:00 - 12:00, Sat, Nov 5 | 3079 Danforth Ave, just east of Victoria Park -- Dabble your green thumbs while the weather is still somewhat tolerable! This is a regular drop in time for working on the rooftop garden so help Access Alliance put their plants to bed.
