Green Life


Green Life at ‘Famous 2007’


Green Life was at ‘Famous 2007’, the 3rd annual singing competition organized by RProduction Team.  We had a kiosk at the entrance, spreading the environmental message to the young chinese in Montreal. 

It was a bit tough in the beginning, facing many rejections.  By the end, we did have tons of FUN and did manage to recruit some new people to help us.  We also hand out bookmarks with environmental tips, which are printed on recyclable paper.  Hope they work!

After the show ended, Laine took the initiative to pick up recyclables at the venue.  This includes flyers and all the bright orange ‘pang pang’.  Those are reyclable because it’s soft plastic!  a big THANK YOU to Laine. 

About the concert.  At17 was really cool.  Love their energy and sincerity.  Do you know they work with Green Peace Hong Kong?  We need more young people like them to stop climate change and build a better future!

ho la! comments ha la!

Cedric’s account of a day in Green Life

We met up at 6:30PM at Concordia and had a 7-hour long meeting spanning three locations within the city of Montreal. Some of the biggest issues we raised involved Green Life’s role with the various groups it collaborates with. We also prepped for an eventual kiosk in Chinatown in two weeks from now. It’s going to be green – really green. – Cedric

Sandra’s account of the 7-hour meeting: For me, the biggest issue we discussed was putting together Green Life’s mission statement, learning about team’s motivation and expectations, etc. That was the most rewarding experience for me, so far, since the birth of Green Life.
Green Life is results-driven. And we are not just an after-school program. We are here to stay, to help our own community to become more ecologically sustainable. – Sandra

Al Gore at Chinese Family Service

We showed our second movie screening – Inconvenient Truth in English and Chinese subtitles. 8 people showed up, excluding the Green Life team. 2 walked in after reading the Gazette’s article. This makes me really happy.

But there are possiblities. Each person who came here has a vast social network connected to them. For instance, three of which came from the Women’s Group from Chinese Family Service. After the movie, they were very excited about the topic, and even wanted to dub this movie in Cantonese or Mandarin! We can’t wait to see the type of collaboration we can have with the Women’s Group.

Thank you Michelle Lalonde for writing the article in Gazette. Thank you the Green Life team for putting together this screening… as my mind was occupied with other stuff. But most importantly, MANY MANY THANKS to Cedric and Shu Yi for picking up the projector from McGill at the very last minute. You guys saved the day! And finally, thank you Kwan from Chinese Family Service for providing us the space and support for letting us to show this film at their location.
