MONTREAL, Feb. 2019 / CNW Telbec / - As part of the event The planet comes to school, more than 750 participants from more than 125 organizations, including around 100 public and private educational institutions, from six administrative regions, from primary to university, gathered at Regina Assumpta College for a Climate Forum and eco-responsibility at school.

The participants adopted a Youth appeal and the educational environment in favor of the fight against climate change at school and massively adhered to the Quebec school pact. Among these signatories, let us highlight those of the Federation of Quebec School Boards, of the Quebec College Student Federation and some Federation of Private Institutions of Quebec.

According to Dominic Vézina, initiator and ideator of The planet comes to school:The school must be consistent with today's challenges and capable of training young people who in turn will be able to meet these challenges. It is our duty to act now to ensure a viable future. "

Many actors involved in the fight against climate change were present such as Laure Waridel, Julie Le Breton, Vincent Graton, Mélissa Mollen Dupuis, Eddy Pérez and Karel Mayrand. About ten artists, including Antoine Gratton, Émile Bilodeau, Alfa Rococo, Amylie, Gaële and Claude Legault came to support the voices of young people by reinterpreting " The Hymn to the Beauty of the World ". 

From today, Quebec schools are coming to Earth and getting involved in action by contributing to the climate challenge and by mobilizing young people in favor of a viable and equitable future for all.
