We’re in this together

For the first time ever, climate change and the environment were top issues in the federal election. And on Monday, New Brunswickers and Canadians clear across the country voted in force for serious action to protect our families and shift to a cleaner energy economy in the face of the climate crisis.  Read on to see some of our top priorities for our new and re-elected Parliamentarians as we call for cooperation and decisive action to deliver the solutions voters have asked for. Our 50th anniversary special edition of EcoAlert is out!

A huge thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate our 50th anniversary and New Brunswick’s eco heroes at our gala earlier this month. Upwards of 400 people joined us at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery to reflect on 50 years of environmental action and honour the people and organizations who have worked to be part of the solution with us all these years. Check out the link below for some photos from the night. If you images you’d like to share, we’d love to see them. And, of course, if you’d like a copy of any of our images, we’re happy to share!
