Environmental Sustainability Discussions

MANOR PARK SUSTAINABILITY DISCUSSIONS

The MPCA Environment & Sustainability Committee invites you to come out and support local sustainability efforts in our community! Come join us Saturday, March 14th, from 1:00-4:00 pm at the Manor Park Community Centre for an afternoon of discussions on community sustainability and sustainability projects.

Register for free here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/manor-park-sustainability-discussions-tickets-94920717421

Ottawa Biosphere Eco-City (OBEC) is a local environmental educational charity working to encourage engagement and cooperation in sustainability in communities all across Ottawa. Our goal is to engage local citizens in discussion in their communities and come up with a Community Sustainability Plan (CSP) that will inspire them to start their own sustainability projects.

This event will be a workshop on Manor Park’s sustainability efforts, OBEC’S 10 sustainability themes (food, transport, waste, energy, habitat, natural capital, design, health, recreation and sense of place) and an interactive discussion led by the community, where we come up with tangible sustainability projects and identify leaders who will make them happen! Please browse our website to explore more about our work, community sustainability plans and our database of sustainability projects: http://obec-evbo.ca.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there and making sustainability a priority in our community.

Sincerely,

MPCA Environment & Sustainability Committee and Ottawa Biosphere Eco-City (OBEC)
