Nominate a Role Model as Deadline Nears

ESKASONI – The Bras d’Or Lakes Collaborative Environmental Planning Initiative (CEPI) launched the Golden Award for the Bras d’Or Lakes October 11, 2012. A reminder is being sent to those considering nominating candidates that the deadline, March 15 is very close! This award gives special attention and recognition to those role models who, through their deeds and actions, help ensure the Spirit of the Bras d’Or Lakes speaks today and for future generations.

“The Bras d’Or Lakes is a unique environment shaped by the plants, fish and animals who live in and around it. It is also influenced by people and organizations that work hard as stewards of the Bras d’Or Lakes,” says Charlie Dennis, chair of the CEPI Management Committee. “Through this award program, CEPI wants to commend current contributions while encouraging others to implement similar actions to improve water quality and the natural environments of the Bras d’Or Lakes.”

The deadline for nominations is March 15, 2013. The announcement of the winners will coincide with World Water Day activities scheduled for March 22, 2013, between 1:00 and 4:00pm, at the Verschuran Centre (Centre for Sustainability in Energy and the Environment) at Cape Breton University. Keynote Speaker Anna Marie Hatcher is scheduled to address those present with her talk, “Water Cooperation: Mother Earth has Rights.”
