Youth Climate Action Summit 2020 postponed to October

Frontenac Arch Biosphere / FAB This Month / 26 April 2020

The FABN in partnership with the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Foundation and the Enviro Club at Brockville Collegiate Institute are organizing a Youth Climate Action Summit. The Summit was to take place on April 20-21, 2020 at the Aquatarium in Brockville. In light of recent global and regional recommendations, the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Network decided to postpone the Youth Climate Action Summit to October 5-6, 2020. At this point in time, details on the summit, available at youthclimateactionsummit.ca, will remain the same and registrations are still open for the new dates. We look forward to hosting this powerful two day gathering of youth in the fall!

Waste Reduction Week in Canada, October 21 – 27, 2019

Waste Reduction Week in Canada is a year-round program, focused solely on the principles of circular economy, resource efficiency, and waste reduction. The program’s primary purpose is to celebrate our environmental efforts and achievements while encouraging new innovative ideas and solutions. The celebratory nature of the campaign is how it motivates learning and behavior change.

The program’s educational resources and “take action” messaging empower all Canadians to adopt more environmentally conscious choices. Waste Reduction Week in Canada further provides information and ideas to reduce waste in all facets of daily living, creating the solutions to the many environmental challenges we face including climate change, water pollution and preservation of natural resources.

The Transition Framework

What the Transition movement does incredibly well is small-scale experiments which are practical, which resonate with local people, which look as if they’re doable, and that can engage people at a practical and meaningful level. It connects up the big issues and the local issues and shows you that change can happen at a local level.
