Celebrating Sustainability: Bringing People Together

by Kristina Inrig


Sustainable Eastern Ontario is a network organization that fosters partnerships and collaborates on sustainability activities across Eastern Ontario. We do this by bringing sustainability groups together, developing strategic collaborations across the sector, building capacity of administration and operations, and celebrating successes across the region. We are raising the profile and capability of sustainability initiatives and telling the story of transition and resilience in our community.
