Events Guide: Exploring ways to grow

Exploring Ways to Grow, Halifax
HALIFAX – “There’s a reason why I love this town” croons hometown hero Joel Plaskett. At tonight’s presentation, those reasons why we love HRM and the reasons why it could be improved will be deliberated. Hosted by the Ecology Action Centre, guest speakers David Donnelly, former director of Environmental Defence, and Bruce Lourie, author of Slow Death by Rubber Duck, will discuss how development and sustainability can coexist — how Halifax can continue to grow and evolve while embracing environmental stewardship and maintaining all those features we love. The presentation comes in anticipation of the first five-year review of HRM’s Regional Municipal Planning Strategy — an exciting opportunity for the public to push HRM to strive for more sustainable development.
