Forum on the Environment

Terre

On June 13, 2020, we launched our first-ever Forumon the Environment, a free, 100% online event for the whole family. Initiated by the Town of Rosemère’s Civic Committee on the Environment (CCE), set up in June 2019. 




About the Civic Committee on the Environment (CCE) 

In connection with its strategic vision, “Rosemère, a proud, green and prosperous town,” the Town set up this advisory committee in June 2019. CCE members are Robert Farand, Claude Jourdain, Joanne Lafond, Jasmine Lail and Émilie Lapalme-Gendron, five community member volunteers who have significant expertise in environmental and sustainable development matters, along with mayor Eric Westram and councillors Marie-Hélène Fortin and René Villeneuve. The main role of the committee is to develop and promote the Town’s green vision.

The 2020 event addressed topics as varied as zero waste, natural environments, biodiversity and drinking water conservation. Through two live, one-hour web conferences, participants of all ages had the opportunity to learn about a zero-waste lifestyle with Cindy Trottier, founder of the Circuit Zéro Déchet and discover the efforts undertaken to preserve natural environments and biodiversity in our area with Anaïs Boutin, Director of Protection and Conservation for Éco-Nature at the Parc de la Rivière-des-Mille-Îles.
