Cyclo-Nomade visits Sudbury

Benoit Tousignant, also known as « Le CycloNomade » will be speaking at Tom Davies Square on Wednesday May 27 as he passes through Sudbury. The presentation (in French only) will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Council Chambers, 200 Brady Street, Sudbury.

Through the CycloNomade project, Mr. Tousignant, a secondary school teacher from Quebec, has been travelling around the world by bicycle in order to make people aware of the great challenges we face in improving the state of our environment. Particularly, he wants to observe and increase the level of awareness among young people regarding environmental protection. Since his journey began, over one year ago, the CycloNomade has inspired more that 10,000 school children to write letters to the Prime Minister expressing their concerns and commitment to the environment. He will take these letters to Parliament Hill when arrives in Ottawa on June 5, 2009, World Environment Day.

Hopefully you will be able to attend, and please distribute this invitation widely.
