Best Activist Organization

Ecology Action Centre

“I love it,” says Charlene Boyce Young, the recently arrived EAC Outreach and Development Coordinator, of her work environment, referring with a chuckle to an organizational structure that tends to chaos from time to time. “Every day people bring their A game,” she adds. The renowned environmental organization advocates for an eco-centric focus in a number of areas, including transportation, energy, sustainable food, coastal issues and wilderness protection. Boyce Young points out that in full swing right now is the EAC Christmas Tree program, offering chemical-free organic trees grown in Lunenburg County, as well as workshops around alternative energy and talks on understanding carbon jargon. Plus, the marine committee is planning a shrimp and beer fundraiser this month.2705 Fern Lane, 429-2202
