Consume This - Buying That Matters: A Guide for Youth

The Canadian Centre for Pollution Prevention has just published a guide for youth empowering them to make simple everyday choices to protect the environment.

“Consume This – Buying That Matters” has been met with an overwhelming response. In the first 48 hours, over 1000 copies were downloaded from the website, over 5,000 in the first six days.

You can order your full colour EcoLogo certified print copy online at www.c2p2online.com/youth or by calling 1-800-667-9790.

We have had to put a small price tag on the booklet ($6 + tax and postage) to help us cover printing costs. However you can continue to access the online electronic version for free. Read more about Consume This - Buying That Matters: A Guide for Youth

Balancing the Ecological Budget: Marrying Conservation and Economic Development

Location:
High River

Description:
Preston ManningPresident and CEOManning Centre for Building DemocracyHighwood Memorial Centre128 5th Avenue WestHigh River , ABFor information: Andrew Stec (403) 213-3138 In this address, Mr. Manning will endeavour to answer the question: Is it possible in Alberta to marry a genuine commitment to environmental conservation with the province's market-based approach to economic development, especially in the energy sector? He will draw attention to the critical environmental issues facing the province, and the steps which must be taken to devise and implement market-compatible solutions to those problems. He will investigate the application of these solutions to such problems as Alberta's impending water shortages, the future of the eastern slopes and the boreal forests, the best way to energize oil sand extraction processes, and the issue of province-wide land-use planning. He will invite questions and comments from the audience and address the question asked by an increasing number of Albertans who value both environmental conservation and economic development: Where do we go from here?
