Promotional Resources

PPG has assembled a collection of internal and external communication tools for all participating organisations. The copy and templates shared below are for you to use, modify or inspire you to create your own messaging.

Communication Templates (feel free to make changes to the text accordingly):

  1. Introductory E-Blast – This e-blast provides a brief introduction to the program, encourages your team to subscribe to the weekly newsletters, and participate in a kick-off event (should you opt to throw one).
  2. Social Impact E-Blasts for Social Impact and Climate Action– This copy will help you easily promote and explain each of the two campaigns for 2022. It provides details on what to expect, where to find more information and information on the in-person event for each campaign. There are also templates that a senior manager can share on their personal social media account(s) announcing your organization’s participation in this year’s Challenge
  3. Social Media Posts: Some suggested copy that will help you share the news of your team’s participation in the People Power Challenge and make it easy to implement. Please remember to use these with your personalized social media frames located on your individual Champion page. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #PPC2022 and earn points!

Event Information

Green Living at the Village – In-Person Event at Black Creek Pioneer Village on August 25

Discover how our past relationship with the land can shape an eco-friendly future. Explore the good and bad of the 19th century. Encounter a time where single-use was a rarity and a stronger connection to the land was vital to success. Identify the surprising polluters of a bygone age – how golden wheat fields and picturesque country mills harmed local ecosystems. Uncover how the past teaches us to use less and rethink our relationship with the land today.  Participation in this event will secure 500 points for your team.

Join us on August 25 for a private pre-opening tour (9:30-11:00 am) at Black Creek Pioneer Village. Once the tour ends, you can choose to stay in the village and connect with GTA’s cultural heritage (additional 150 points per attendee on the Activities Scorecard).

Registration will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. The Registration link will be shared shortly. The deadline for registration is August 11.

PPG Community Planting Event – Saturday, September 24

This year’s PPG Community Planting event will bring together the PPG community to spend a morning dedicated to enhancing our local environment! Participation in this event will secure 500 points for your team.

Registration will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. More information will be shared in the coming weeks along with the Climate Action activities list.
