It sure does.  More on that is a moment.

This is a historic week for the world with the Conference on Climate change taking place in Copenhagen.  It’s fitting then to share two little tidbits with you today that I thought you might find interesting regarding local initiatives in the Collingwood area.

Last Friday, a group gathered at the Library to sign a petition on the “Climate Wall” followed by a vigil and walk to the local MP’s office in support of the target for “acceptable” levels of carbon emissions.  I found the messages inspiring and in particular, was engaged by the young folks in the crowd as well as by the very interesting discussions that occurred.

There is another upcoming event that may be of interest to you.  On January 6th, the Environment Network and Riversides are presenting a 2 hour seminar called:  “From Toilet to Tap.”  It will be held at the Wastewater Treatment Plant located at 3 Birch St north of First and will include a tour of the facility and a seminar on ways to reduce the volume of polluted urban stormwater runoff the reaches our taps.

I heard at the vigil that a Transition Town group is forming in the area.  Since reading The Transition Handbook: from oil dependency to local resilience, I’ve been fascinated by these and am excited to hear we will have one here.  Stay tuned as it develops further.
