We are delighted to share that the Nova Scotia Environmental Network (NSEN) is hosting a 2-day gathering “Eco Connects NS” on September 22 & 23 in Truro. The Friday (22nd) event will be at the Glengarry Inn and Saturday (23rd) event will be at the Douglas Street Recreation Centre. Since the inaugural gathering in 1991, new and complex challenges such as climate change have increased our need to work together towards positive change. This is an opportunity for environmental leaders from diverse sectors across the province to come together, celebrate what's been done, and identify the shared priorities for our future conservation efforts.

At Eco Connects NS, we aim to build capacity for environmental conservation across Nova Scotia. We are inviting leaders from non-profit organizations, First Nations organizations, provincial/ municipal/ federal government, researchers, youth, and the general public to join the conversations and festivities. Silver Donald Cameron and Elder Albert Marshall will be joining us as speakers on Friday.

See schedule below (updated September 16th).

NSEN is more relevant and important than ever before as a supporter and convener of environmental leaders. We are welcoming you to join the reinvigoration efforts for the NSEN by joining as a member, which comes with discounts of up to $30 for event registration. Membership includes a monthly EcoConnects newsletter, workshop and event discounts, Caucuses (Water and Environmental Education are active), and more. Membership forms for Individuals ($10-20), Organizations ($40-150), and Associate members ($100) are available here: https://nsenvironmentalnetwork.com/how-to-join/how-to-join

We hope to see you there!

Sincerely,

Co-organizers Amy Buckland-Nicks and Kelly Schnare
