​​Dear Colleagues,

For the past decade UHN has been a leader in the health-care community for its environmental initiatives. Our commitment to improving the environment for our staff and patients are demonstrated in a variety of projects, from our award-winning cycling programs to the TLC -Thermostats, Lights and Controls initiative. This Friday, April 24 at 2 p.m., we will have the opportunity to showcase our commitment to our surrounding community, as UHN participates for the first time in the 20-Minute Toronto Makeover.

This is the sixth annual City of Toronto event and last year over 135,000 Torontonians participated. Volunteers go out in the community, picking up litter for 20 minutes in parks, schoolyards, around businesses and other public areas. It provides everyone with the opportunity to turn green ideas into action, while giving the city an instant spring-cleaning.

Interested staff, who are released by their Manager, should bring their own gloves and pick up a bag from volunteer resources at one of the following locations:

TGH - Information desks at the Elizabeth and University entrances PMH - Across from Nicholby's TWH - Information desk behind Tim Horton's

I encourage you to join me on Friday, April 24th at 2 p.m. for the 20-Minute Toronto Makeover so we can help do our part in keeping our city clean. If you want more information on this event or other ways you can make UHN a "greener" place, contact Ed​ Rubinstein, Manager of Energy and Environment at.
