Rochelle Owen, Executive Director of the Office of Sustainability will kick off the presentation followed by real examples from Dalhousie buildings presented by Justin MacDonald (Dalhousie Efficiency NS embedded energy manager) and Dean Harnish (Technical Trades and Service Manager).

Water protectors are on the front lines at the mighty Shubenacadie River resisting Alton Gas. They are doing crucial work to protect the water for all of us. With winter coming, they need our support to keep them warm and safe.
Solidarity With Alton Gas Resistance is hosting a silent auction to benefit water protectors on December 3 at the Bus Stop Theatre. There will be many items to bid on: art, crafts, gift certificates for services, and more! There will also be a short talk by water protectors, musical performances, a poetry reading, and door prizes! Spoiler: the door prize is a pie.
Proceeds from this silent auction and performance fundraiser will directly support frontline resistance efforts against the Alton Gas Natural Gas Storage project.
This event is being planned on unceded Mi’kmaq Territory by SWAGR (Solidarity With Alton Gas Resistance), a Halifax-based group of activists from Council of Canadians, Ecology Action Centre, Solidarity Halifax, and the general community. The focus of this group is to support resistance efforts against the Alton Natural Gas Storage Project, and we take our direction from frontline Mi’kmaq communities and other residents of the surrounding area.
Date: Sunday December 3, 2-5PM
Location: Bus Stop Theatre, 2203 Gottingen Street
Suggestion entry donation: $5-20
There will be door prizes, music and poetry, and many items to bid on in the silent auction!
