Primary contact: Nicole McLaughlin
Language of Service: English, French
Scope of Activities: Local
Region: Northwest
Purpose: The Mission of Green Light NB Feu Vert is to promote education that leads to action on reducing the impact of the Northwestern New Brunswick region on the environment, with a focus on issues surrounding Climate Change. Three main areas of concern were identified (and are subject to change): 1. Sustainable Forestry; 2. Reduction of the use of plastics; and 3. Promotion of the use of Electric Vehicles (EVs).
Activities: We spent a lot of time in 2019 just trying to get structured and then, in 2020 COVID-19 struck. Thus, we have not delivered as many activities as we were hoping. Our main goal is to raise awareness in the north west region about the importance of taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help citizens and municipalities take action. Since 2019, we have organized 3 green presentations that are open to the public. We have given maple trees to the public and we are currently helping establish a community garden in Grand Falls.
Resources Available to the Public: Workshops and events
