A Conversation on Legislation (it’s more interesting than it sounds – promise)

February 25, 2013

Last year the Province of Manitoba launched TomorrowNow – Manitoba’s Green Plan. This eight-year strategic plan sets out how the Province will advance the social, economic and environmental pillars of sustainability.

The Province is also developing new legislation to support the plan and replace the existing Sustainable Development Act. Tentatively titled the Green Prosperity Act, the new Act will define government’s goals and link all current and future activities and legislation related to environmental sustainability.

The Province has created a consultation process to seek organizational and individual input in shaping the Act. Because of the College’s commitment to sustainability and the important role we play in Manitoba’s economy, Red River College will be submitting feedback on the proposed legislation… and we want your help!

A Conversation on Legislation” will be held on:

Wednesday, March 6th from 9:00am – 3:00pm in FM31 (Notre Dame Campus)

Friday, March 8th from 12:00pm – 4:00pm in W411 (Roblin Centre)

Hosted by the Sustainability Office, we’ll be gathering staff input using the white board, flip charts and other tools. There’s no need to register for these sessions, just pop by when you have a chance. All supporting documentation is hyperlinked in this post, but even if you don’t have time to review the info, don’t let that keep you from coming by and giving your two-cents. Information gathered from these sessions will be combined to form the College’s submission. Let’s have a conversation… about legislation!

If you can’t attend a session but want to give input, please contact Sara MacArthur (smacarthur@rrc.ca) Manager of Sustainability.
