Annual General Meeting

Hey SC Peeps,

It’s almost that time again. The one time in the whole year that you get to VOTE and hear about all the amazing activities we and our volunteers have been involved in throughout 2023.

It’s our Annual General Meeting!
Mark your calendar for Monday, December 6, 6:00 p.m.

We also have some really wonderful opportunities for you to throw your hat in the ring and run for one of our Board positions. Currently, we are in need of a Food Action lead as well as a Bicycle Action lead. Check out the website to see what those positions involve.

We’re going Hybrid so for those who prefer to stay cozy at home and participate via Zoom or those of you who really like in-person, we’ve got both covered!

Meet you in person people at 62 Swayne in Downtown Cobourg.

  • In the next couple of weeks, we’ll be forwarding the Zoom Link and the Agenda, so watch out for that bulletin. That message will also have the minutes from last year’s AGM which you will need to vote on at this year’s AGM so give it a read and shoot me any questions that you may have. Thanks in advance for that.
  • It’s also membership renewal time and we really appreciate your financial support and commitment to helping achieve our Vision and Mission.
  • We’ll be having a festive get-together in December at the Mill again so watch out for further info on that.

Call or email me if you have any questions.

Did You Know?

Packed into standard shipping containers and placed end-to-end, municipal solid waste generated in one year would wrap around the globe 25 times. This is unsustainable! What is your community doing to target waste reduction? -

Adopting sustainable practices, whether large or small, can have significant impacts in the long run. If every office worker in the United Kingdom used one less staple a day by using a reusable paper clip, 120 tonnes of steel would be saved in one year.

So far in 2022, Depave Paradise has depaved 15 asphalt pavements! Since 2012 this group has completed 80 projects across 32 Canadian cities covering 76,384 square metres of unused paved surfaces into beautiful community green spaces with native grasses, flowers and trees. What an amazing sustainable action to capture carbon, a Greenhouse gas, and create a welcoming ecological ‘paradise’ for our monarchs and bees and of course, for us. Well done. This is a project of Green Communities Canada.

In 1993, the Convention on Biological Diversity put the precautionary principle to work.

In 1987, the Brundtland Report consolidated decades of work on sustainable development.

The First World Climate Conference happened in 1979 and opened up the science of climate change.
