first_imgNova Scotia youth who worked on environmentally friendly projects this summer will have the opportunity to share their experiences and accomplishments with the community on Friday, Aug. 25. As part of the Nova Scotia Youth Conservation Corps program, students will participate in an information sharing session at the end of their summer employment. More than 50 students will deliver both formal and informal presentations highlighting their contributions to protecting Nova Scotia’s environment. “The Nova Scotia Youth Corps has had tremendous success this summer,” said Mark Parent, Minister of Environment and Labour. “We are proud of the work our students made toward their communities and the environment.” Environmentally friendly project proposals were accepted from community groups, businesses, government agencies and environmental organizations. Projects throughout the province included a backyard composting audit, a sustainable transportation project, and an outreach and awareness project for waste management. The session takes place from 9 a.m. to noon at Morrison Hall on the St. Francis Xavier University campus in Antigonish.
