Forum on the Environment

Terre

On June 12, 2021, the Town of Rosemère will launch the second edition of its Forum on the Environment; a free, 100% virtual family event! This forum, which was a great success during its first edition in 2020, is an initiative of the Town of Rosemère’s Civic Committee on the Environment (CCE).





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, Alain Dessureault, 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 event will address topics as varied as an introduction to permaculture, recycling, food waste, pollinators, and wildlife as seen through the fascinating life of the Canadian beaver. Through three live web conferences and two pre-recorded conferences ranging from 45 to 90 minutes each, participants of all ages will have the opportunity to learn more about these environmental topics, depending on their interest.

Zero Food Waste | 11:30 a.m. | Duration 90 minutes | Live Participatory Webinar 

Conference in French, answers to questions - bilingual

Speaker: Florence-Léa Siry of Chic Frigo sans Fric

One could say that zero waste cooking chose Florence-Léa Siry when she was a caterer. It is by learning to cook better that she became aware of the environment. It must be said that she did not expect it, because since her childhood, she did everything to avoid looking like her mother, a real environmental activist! It was by inventing recipes that she understood the importance of taking care of the planet. Now an author and speaker, she demonstrates that giving 1, 2, 3 lives to surplus food is a daily pleasure.


On the Trail of the Beaver | 1:00 p.m. | Duration 45 minutes | Live participatory family web-conference (5 to 8 years) 

Conference in French, answers to questions - bilingual

Speaker: Sébastien Bordage, from Éco-Nature

Discover the fascinating life of the Canadian beaver! Whether through native mythology, the history of the fur trade or the transformations in its natural habitat, this large rodent plays a unique role.

This educational activity allows you to learn more about the physiognomy of a mammal, its way of life and to understand why humans have been interested in this animal since prehistoric times. In the company of an animator, use your engineering skills and try to guess how to recreate the beaver's structure to understand its impact on the environment.


Indigenous Pollinators | Anytime: Webcast | Duration 45 minutes

Conference in French

Speaker: Simon-Julien Lacroix, from Alvéole (Alvéole is the organization that looks after the Hamilton House beehives)

Agriculturist, oenologist, philosopher and cycling enthusiast, Simon-Julien Lacroix had the chance to wear many hats and realize many dreams before becoming a beekeeper at Alvéole. He is eager to share his passion and his humble knowledge with those who cross my path. He always has a good story to tell!

Bees are the workers behind a third of the food on our plates, such as fruits, vegetables, chocolate, nuts and coffee. In this lecture-style workshop, you will learn about urban beekeeping and the little society that is a hive, and follow the story of a bee's life from the moment it emerges from its cell to its very last flight.
