The Township of Wentworth proudly adopts the Generations Chair!

It was at the August 7 council meeting that the children of the Township of Wentworth presented the Generations Chair to the municipal council. This citizen initiative, initiated by Mrs. Diane Choquet, member of the Environmental Consulting Committee and founding trustee of Wild, aims to remind elected officials that every decision made today will have an impact on the future of generations to come.

Created by a dozen children during an activity at Dunany Country Club, this chair will certainly have a symbolic place and will represent the children's voice. "This Generations Chair is a fantastic tool to engage the youngest generations into both expressing their feelings about their environment and showing them ways to DO something about it. It also showed them that their voices can be heard in government, and that their concerns matter! " explain Revilla Sauvé and Stephanie Logothetis, director in charge of all junior activities at the Dunany Country Club. Covered in tree bark, butterflies and planets, the children let their imaginations guide them in creating the chair. They also wrote words on the chair, such as "thank you for taking care of our lakes" and "protect us".

For its part, the municipal Council is committed to placing the chair permanently in the Concil room.  "This chair will remind us that every decision we make today will make a big difference. Whether it's decisions related to housing, conservation, residential projects, waste management or even lake protection, every one of them will have an impact for future generations," exclaims Township of Wentworth Mayor Jason Morrison.

The Mothers Step In group is spearheading the Generations Chair project, and to date has mobilized children and students from all over Quebec to decorate chairs given to elected municipal officials. The Township of Wentworth is currently the first municipality in the MRC d'Argenteuil to adopt the project. "We need our neighbors, our region, our province and our country to carry the torch with us.  Together, we can certainly make a difference," continues the mayor.
