A look back on the Blue Dot Tour’s trek across Canada.
If you live in Canada, you may have already heard about the Blue Dot Tour, a movement that the David Suzuki Foundation began in the fall of 2014.
Starting last September in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the Blue Dot Tour rolled out across Canada with the intention of bringing the country together in an effort to have the “right to breathe fresh air, drink clean water and eat healthy food legally recognized at all levels of government.” (Source: bluedot.ca) With multiple events in 20 cities throughout Canada, the Blue Dot Tour offered community celebrations, evenings with David Suzuki, musicians, and writers, “park crawls” and other walking tours, scavenger hunts for children, and more, all of which revolved around the sole purpose of getting Canadians thinking and talking about protecting our environment and, ultimately, ourselves.
According to the Blue Dot Tour website, almost 65,000 Canadians have joined their local movement in conjunction with the Blue Dot movement. Even though the official Blue Dot Tour has come to an end, you can learn more about the cause at www.bluedot.ca and in the video below.
