7.7.07 - Live Earth Concerts Broadcast at Toronto Greenfest


This coming Saturday a huge musical and environmental event is taking place: over 100 of some of the world's most popular musicians and bands will give Live Earth concerts all over the globe to promote awareness of the global warming and inspire folks to do something about it. If that sounds exciting, but your plans for the weekend don't happen to include a jaunt to Rio de Janeiro, Sydney, Kyoto or any other concert locations, the next best thing has to be the live broadcast at Yonge-Dundas Square, between noon and 8 p.m., at the Green Toronto Streetfest. Isn't it nice when those giant screens are used for something other than ads, like these concerts or sci-fi flicks?

In addition to the broadcast, you'll get a chance to find out about environmentally-friendly products and services that are available locally, and learn about ways you can help fight the climate crisis. Yonge St. will be closed between Dundas and Shuter to make room for the festivities, so hop on the TTC or your bike - and see you at the green party!
