Moncton, NB, March 6, 2019 – The Congrès mondial acadien 2019 is launching an Eco-Friendly Event Guide to support its partners in adopting environmentally friendly practices within their workplace and community.

The Eco-Friendly Guide will be a companion tool for host municipalities, family reunion organizers and all other partners of the CMA 2019. It contains accessible, feasible turnkey solutions aimed at reducing each organization’s footprint through its regular operations and activities.

The guide offers ideas for initiatives linked to food, transportation and accessibility, waste, as well as awareness and support.

“Sustainable development concerns each and every one of us – and that is even more true now with the urgency to adopt healthier, greener initiatives for the future of our children and grandchildren,” said Claudette Thériault, Chair of CMA 2019. “With the collaboration of our partners, we know that we will be able to make a difference for the environment.”

In today’s environment, the public is exerting greater pressure to implement eco-friendly measures, while partners want to promote their image of social responsibility. Some partners have already voiced their interest in supporting this movement, including watershed groups, Eco 360 and the Kent Regional Service Commission (New Brunswick), as well as the Island Waste Management Corporation (Prince Edward Island).

CMA 2019 hopes that the guide will serve beyond the 2019 celebrations and continue to evolve to support the organization of environmentally responsible events everywhere in Acadie.
