The Plan-It Earth Youth Forum
Plan-It Earth was a full-day event held at Prince of Wales Secondary on April 26, 2010.
In 2050, there will be six billion people living in cities. If all of those people lived in an urban centre such as Vancouver, we would need four earths.
Have you ever wanted to learn more about sustainability in cities? Want your ideas heard by city planners? Plan-It Earth is your chance to take ACTION and create change in our vancouver region!
