Toronto Conservation Action Network is organizing a number of Community Eco-fairs in March 2008

The fairs aim to connect people with the organizations and companies that can help them live better through conservation. The fairs are hosted by the Conservation Council of Ontario in partnership with Green Enterprise Toronto and five local partners, with the support of the Ontario Ministry of Energy.

The organizers will be using a speed-presentation format, which means people can hear between five and seven short pitches within an hour. Participants will receive a list of presenters and they will be able to choose the presentations they want to hear. “It’s like speed-dating for the environment,” said Chris Winter, Executive Director of the Conservation Council of Ontario. “It means people can pick the presentations they are interested in.”

Re: greening communities from within

Hey thanks for the great blog, I love this stuff. I don’t usually do much for Earth Day but with everyone going green these days, I thought I’d try to do my part.

I am trying to find easy, simple things I can do to help stop global warming (I don’t plan on buying a hybrid). Has anyone seen that is promoting their Earth Day (month) challenge, with the goal to get 1 million people to take their carbon footprint test in April?... I took the test, it was easy and only took me about 2 minutes and I am planning on lowering my score with some of their tips.

I am looking for more easy fun stuff to do. If you know of any other sites worth my time let me know.

Effective environmental policies have to be adopted by the masses in order to be successful. It's the politicians job to make environmental initiatives exciting and fun.

If you want to be loved the world round, do something to be loved. This is why we were the hero of the world post WWII.

During their growth and maturation, people encounter a variety of individuals and experiences. Infants first interact with their immediate family, then with extended family.
