Manitoba Eco-Network is an umbrella for environmental organizations in Manitoba. A registered charity, the network marked its 30th anniversary in 2014. The Eco-Network's mission statement says it all: “We promote positive environmental action by connecting people and groups in our communities. We educate, we facilitate, we celebrate!”
With over 75 member groups working on a wide range of environmental issues, all over the province of Manitoba, the Eco-Network brings groups together, shares information widely with the general public and builds capacity in the environmental movement through workshops and training opportunities, eco-volunteer placement, a public environmental library, annual awards, and its regular publication, Eco-Journal.
The Eco-Network also hosts a number of educational and capacity-building projects, including Climate Change Connection, the Water Caucus, Organic Lawn Care Education, the Manitoba Environmental Youth Network, and is the coordinator of Sustainability Month (October) in Manitoba.
The network "lives" in an eco-friendly office space, shared with 5 other environmental non-profits, on the 3rd floor of Mountain Equipment Coop's LEED Gold building in Winnipeg. If you're ever in Winnipeg, stop by for a visit!
