Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

SYDNEY — The green­ing of sa­cred spa­ces will be the sub­ject of a work­shop in Sydney to­day. Cape Bre­ton Univer­sity’s Tomp­kins In­sti­tute and Faith and the Com­mon Good, a na­tional in­ter­faith, non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion are of­fer­ing the work­shop. The work­shop will take place at 7 p.m. in Sydney at the New Dawn Cen­tre for So­cial In­no­va­tion in Suite 104. Those want­ing to at­tend are ad­vised to use the en­trance off Ne­pean Street. The work­shop will be led by Stephen Col­lette, green au­dit man­ager for Faith and the Com­mon Good, and Emma Nor­ton, en­ergy con­ser­va­tion co-or­di­na­tor for the Ecol­ogy Ac­tion Cen­tre. It will be an in­for­mal op­por­tu­nity for tips and prob­lem solv­ing. There is no charge, but space is lim­ited. Peo­ple are asked to reg­is­ter in ad­vance by con­tact­ing Tom Ur­ba­niak at tom_ur­ba­[email protected] or 902-563-1226. In ad­di­tion to the open work­shop, next week will fea­ture on-site, de­tailed, prac­ti­cal green au­dits of three Cape Bre­ton places of faith. Each con­gre­ga­tion will re­ceive writ­ten rec­om­men­da­tions for cost-sav­ings and ad­just­ments, both short and medium-term, that are sen­si­tive to their mis­sion and com­mu­nity as­sets. There will also be a fol­lowup meet­ing with a con­gre­ga­tion that had a green au­dit done last year.
