Sweater Day

- bundling up and conserving energy  -

On Friday, February 19th the GECDSB, as a board, will be participating in Sweater Day to raise awareness about climate change and conserve energy.

The employees at the administrative building along with staff and students at 53 schools will be wearing sweaters to work and school and thermostats will be all turned down by 2 degrees. We are also encouraging everyone working at home to join in.

GECDSB buildings are heated by hot water that is heated by natural gas combustion, which produces carbon dioxide (CO2) a greenhouse gas. CO2 emissions contribute to global warming and ultimately, climate change.
