  • Emissions FootprintThe relationship between greenhouse gas emissions and the American military has become an increasingly urgent topic among environmentalists and governments alike.
  • A Crime of Convenience: On a bright and sunny September day in Halifax, Nova Scotia, an army of volunteers from the EAC and Greenpeace Canada descended upon Turtle Grove beach to take part in World Clean Up Day.
  • Treaty Fishing: SO MUCH MORE THAN A GREEN JOB: When we think about a green job, we might first imagine a renewable energy tradesperson.
  • Thinking Outside The BoxThe inevitable reality of death is a topic that many of us prefer to avoid. It makes us squeamish, uncomfortable, vulnerable. It is also something that we all have in common.
  • Nurturing Peace of MindHow do you feel after a stroll in the forest? Relaxed? Empowered? More ready to handle life’s challenges?
  • Peace Off Our CoastNova Scotia is known as Canada’s ocean playground, but few have a chance to see what life is like off our coast.
  • Building A Future of Peace and Friendship: When I learned about relationships between Mi’kmaq communities and settlers at school, it was always in the past tense, punctuated with pioneer cabins made from popsicle sticks.
  • Mirroring the Ecosystem: When you hear the title Moose Management Coordinator you might assume a role that is specific to natural resource management, someone out in the woods gathering data on Alces alces andersoni. But for Clifford Paul of the Unama’ki Institute of Natural Resources (UINR) this role goes much deeper.
  • The Seasonal Gourmet: Fall in Nova Scotia is a bountiful and busy time of year. This Fall vegetabele casserole has all the qualifications of a seasonal, fall recipe—it’s colourful, adaptable, packed with veggies, and comes together without much fuss or a mound of dishes.
