  • New Tech, Old ProblemsDriverless cars have been described as the next big disruptor. A look at this new technology, and how it relates to active and public transportation. 
  • Healing our Broken Energy Systems: In the face of the implications of the climate crisis, it is vital to our shared future that we act rapidly. Equally vital, however, is undoing the harms that our current energy systems have perpetuated on so many communities. 
  • Getting Smart With Technology: A Dartmouth "apartment" that models and tests smart technologies that would exist on a micro, or household level to show how a home can be tuned to run more efficiently from an electrical perspective.
  • A Fishy First: Canada is at the center of the global debate over the future of GM animals after GM Atlantic salmon was sold as food this year. The GM fish was sold into Canada without any labeling for consumers. By the time the public learned that GM salmon was on the market, many had unknowingly eaten it.
  • Wheels, Reels, and RopewaysA greener future looks a lot like the past. Human ingenuity harnessed the power of nature long before we started burning fossil fuels.
  • The Little Eco-Roaster that CanThe ecological and ethical implications of coffee production are no more mutable than our deep appreciation for a well-roasted brew. How one Nova Scotia roaster is working to reduce the emissions produced by the roasting process. 
  • Tech on our Waters: A look at Electronic Video Monitoring used to collect catch data. 
  • Upcycling by the Sea: An artist profile of Dorothea LeBlanc, who upcycles items like computer parts, old jewelry and switch plates into artwork. 
  • Action is our Middle Name: What we're working on right now at the EAC!
  • The Seasonal Gourmet: A recipe for Chef Jason Lynch's Gnocchi a la Parisienne with blue cheese and herbs.
  • Letters from the Centre
