  • 50 Things: An Interactive Province-wide Art Adventure – 50 Things is an interactive treasure-hunt of artistic expression inspired by the past 50 years of environmental activism in Mi’kma’ki/Nova Scotia. Meet 10 of the emerging and established artists from across the province who created artworks for this project and then check out the art in your area before the project closes on Saturday, October 17, 2021! 

  • Recognizing Our Community: EAC’s Annual Awards –  Every year since 1976 at our Annual General Meeting, we hand out awards to celebrate the members of our community that have helped us progress towards our common goals – and to call out those that hindered our work. Read about awards and about how each of this year’s recipients made the list. Here is the full list of recipients. 

  • 50th Anniversary Cover Contest: Meet Our Winners – In the Spring 2021 issue of Ecology & Action, we asked for your help designing the cover of our 50th Anniversary Edition of the magazine and you delivered! Meet the artist responsible for this issue’s cover, as well as the two runners up and learn about their visions for the next fifty years of action for a sustainable, equitable future.

  • Reflections on the Movement – Dive into reflections on 50 years of action from David Suzuki, Elizabeth May, and a number of past and present EAC staff, volunteers, collaborators, members and friends. Read some of the excerpts here, then download the free 50 Things app, grab your headphones and head to the Halifax Central Library for the full audio experience.  

  • The Seasonal Gourmet – It would hardly be an anniversary celebration without cake! Blueberry season may be nearing its end, but there’s still time to join in the festivities and enjoy this delicious blueberry birthday cake recipe. It’s vegan, gluten-free and comes from our very own Community Giving Manager, Paula.

  • You can also learn what our staff have been up to in recent months in Action is our Middle Name.
