Jennifer West from the Ecology Action Centre reported to us about the recent Say Something Big Conference, which we proudly supported this past November.

The conference, held in November 2012 was designed to engage and inspire Nova Scotia youth (ages 13-18) to take action on the environmental issues most pressing to them. A series of motivating speakers spoke on a range of topics to help spark a dialogue between youth, teachers and community members about important environmental issues.

The Halifax Harbourside Rotary Club supported this project with a $1000 donation. The funds were used to help transport students from rural areas of the province to attend this amazing day. Thank you Jennifer for sharing the success of the day with us. Rotary supports Clean Water and Environmental issues around the world and we were so happy to be involved in education our local youth regarding these global concerns.

Seen here with Rotarian Mike Waghorn, Jennifer accepts our Club Mug as a thank you for being with us today.
