David Buckel: Our Committment

To our Green City Force community: we grieve the passing of David Buckel, our beloved and respected partner. David ended his life in an act of environmental protest and a call to action to end our dependence on fossil fuels. In David’s words: “Our present grows more desperate; our future needs more than what we’ve been doing.  Although solutions lay partly in laws, no power will match that of individuals in large numbers who change their everyday choices and reduce the harm they cause.” We are deeply affected and still processing the impact of his decision. David’s passion, drive, high standards and overall dedication set the tone for cohorts of Green City Force members, staff and graduates over the past seven years. David: through our pain, we are committed to continuing and amplifying our collective work. We have an army of young adults sharing your memory and following through on your legacy, growing year by year. To David’s family: our deepest condolences. At Green City Force, David’s legacy will continue and we will not stop missing him.

We will share updates on how to join us in honoring David and his contributions to Green City Force, in the coming days.
