In response to the global climate crisis we are doing our part through study, spiritual development and action.
Former Toronto mayor, past CEO of the World Wildlife Foundation and current Director of the C40 Cities Leadership Group, David Miller will discuss his book Solved and the role of cities and local communities in solving climate change. A Zoom event co-sponsored for the community by St Aidan's and Beach United Church.

Visiting Tommy Thompson Park is an opportunity for St. Aidan’s community and friends to explore a 250-hectare urban wilderness jutting into Lake Ontario at the south of the city. As an outdoor activity it provides the opportunity for covid-safe distancing and air circulation as well as exercise and community.
We plan to walk into the park from the parking lot following foot trails, separated from the road by trees and shrubs. The pace will be leisurely. If people wish to cycle, the roads are virtually vehicle-free, save for park vehicles.
