The morning of Thursday October 7th, I had the pleasure of gathering together a group of Ottawa area NGO representatives to share their sustainability stories. Presentations highlighted achievements both professional and personal, from achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold status on an office renovation to organizing a sustainability-minded wedding.
The atmosphere was warm and supportive, with sounds of applause and laughter spilling out into the hallway. I felt a strong sense of celebration of achievement, and was encouraged by the shared commitment to the sustainability journey.
