Event Description
(Details may be subject to change)

        Picture this: 5 large tents containing 10 groups per tent. The 5 themes for these
tents will be: Faith Groups, Labour Unions/Workers, NGO's/Social Justice Groups,
Academic Groups, and Businesses. Each group will have a table and a display
explaining what they are doing to make poverty history. The event is likely to be
sponsored by local vendors providing samples of fair trade coffee, chocolate and other
food items.

       There will be 2 large daylight projector screens. One will display sponsors,
important people, keynotes speakers and performers; the other will display a large
countdown clock to the exact moment of the Guinness stand.

        All around Quad will be paraphernalia asking politicians who are attending to
help give 0.7% of Canada's GNI (Gross National Income) as foreign aid as part of the
Get To The Point Campaign.

      Similar to last year, an extremely large pumpkin representing poverty will be
dropped from a crane in safe location to represent the “smashing” or ending of poverty.
