Ecology Ottawa’s 11th annual Eco Gala will take place on Thursday, October 11, at Lansdowne Park.
This year’s Eco Gala will involve a special tribute to Paul Dewar to thank him for his leadership on local environmental issues.
It will also feature an all-star panel of leading local environmental figures discussing challenges and opportunities over the next term of Ottawa City Council. The panel session is titled, “The Next Four Years: Fighting for a Greener Ottawa.” The panel will include Meredith Brown (Ottawa Riverkeeper), Janice Ashworth (Ottawa Renewable Energy Cooperative), Moe Garahan (Just Food) and Robb Barnes (Ecology Ottawa). The discussion will be moderated by Mike de Souza (National Observer).
As in past years, Ecology Ottawa’s Eco Gala will welcome hundreds of guests, including local politicians. It will also feature a delicious vegetarian dinner and a green silent auction.
All proceeds go to support the environmental advocacy work of Ecology Ottawa.
