Here’s to a Green Presidency
As Barack Obama prepares to assume the U.S Presidency on January 20th, it seems like hopes of a "greener" President are already making a difference. Ironically enough, last week George W. Bush set aside three new marine national monuments in the Pacific Ocean. Taken together, these areas cover nearly 200,000 square miles. Let’s hope this announcement signals the beginning of many more environmental initiatives in both Canada and the U.S.!
Share Your Stories with Us
This year, the RCEN would like to explore new ways for members to share their stories, thoughts and opinions about the environmental movement in Canada. After all, communication has always been a core reason for the Network’s existence. RCEN member groups, made up of individuals from all walks of life, and from everywhere in Canada, possess a wealth of knowledge, wisdom and experience that should be shared with others.
Over the next month, we'd like to hear what you think about this idea. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (613) 728-9810, ext. 229 to share your ideas and suggestions on how best we can communicate your experiences. Thank you!
