Community project focuses on cleaner, greener North Sydney
To most who participated, the idea of cleaner and greener go hand in hand. A focus on cleaner is seen as the best approach to building community pride, coupled with some assistance to businesses and multi-unit residences in waste management.
“Through these interviews, we feel we have the capacity to engage more than 1,000 people extending the project well beyond the participants directly interviewed.”
Hendriksen noted that her team tried to make their findings as user-friendly as possible, so regardless of whether Evergreen North Sydney continues as a funded project, there will be ideas that can be implemented with the involvement of volunteer organizations.
“People are very eager to make the community better. Even the mention of the words community pride would invoke feelings of pride. It conjures up visions of enjoyment of community as a healthy place to work and live, shop, walk your dog or play outdoors with your family.” Cape Breton Community Calendar is a public service listing of community events sponsored by non-profit groups.
