The Eco Action Advisory Group supports any action intended to have a positive impact on the environment. This includes: promoting the ‘Three R’s” of the waste hierarchy – Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle; providing connections and information on environmentally -friendly or sustainable policies that protect our ecosystems, and; preventing soil, air, and water pollution in our community.
They help inform the public on matters related to Climate Change such as rising water levels in the Great Lakes . This group developed the ‘Student Sustainability Toolkit” for elementary and secondary schools to help with waste reduction education and projects. Cobourg Collegiate Institutes Environmental Club won the award last year .
