The Project Learning Tree Canada team is excited that the Green Ride for Green Jobs awareness campaign is rolling through its second week. This cross-country bike tour is encouraging youth to work in green jobs and help fill critical roles in forests and parks. Zac Wagman, PLT Canada’s Green Jobs Manager, is cycling from Victoria, BC to St. John’s, Newfoundland. Zac is riding a wooden bike from Montreal’s Piccolo Velo. In his first two weeks on the road, Zac has traveled through 10 communities in Southern BC and covered over 1,000 km/650 miles. By the time he’s finished, Zac will visit 50 Green Jobs employers, in 30 different communities, across nine provinces. PLT Canada is an initiative of SFI.
Zac’s journey began with a celebration in Victoria on May 13. He will cover over 8,750 km in four months. Follow PLT Canada on Twitter( @PLT_Canada), Facebook (@PLTCanada) and #MyGreenJob for updates.
