DSA awarded The Irene Kock Education & Communication Award
The Durham Environmental Advisory Committee's (DEAC) prestigious 2011 Environmental Achievement Awards were handed out on May 12th during a special ceremony at The Regional Municipality of Durham Headquarters in Whitby.
Durham Sustain Ability was among the winners, taking home the Irene Kock Education/Communication Award for our We Have the Power phase two program. The program included collecting pledges to reduce and conserve in the categories of energy and water conservation, waste reduction and sustainable transportation. At the end of the campaign, DSA received 640 household pledges, resulting in 1,600 individuals engaged in We Have the Power actions adopting new behaviours and making better decisions for the environment.
