On October 12th 2017, Ecology Ottawa will be celebrating our 10th anniversary by hosting EcoFest – Ottawa’s biggest gathering of the environmental community… www.ecologyottawa.ca
Come celebrate with us! Hear from inspiring speakers, enjoy vegetarian/vegan food from local restaurants, sip on beer from Ottawa’s finest craft breweries, watch live art installations, bid on exciting auction prizes, network with like-minded Ottawa residents and explore all the innovative green businesses, organizations and initiatives Ottawa has to offer.
Our keynote speaker will be Olivia Chow, previous Toronto councillor and mayoral candidate and current distinguished professor at Ryerson University on community organizing. We look forward to learning more about her experience serving Toronto’s municipal politics and her expertise in community engagement, and how to apply it to the Ottawa context.
EcoFest will be Ecology Ottawa’s largest event, but it is about so much more than our 10th anniversary. This evening is to celebrate you – Ottawa residents, organizations, community groups and businesses who care about clean water, thriving greenspace, great public transportation, and a prosperous clean energy economy that creates jobs and fights climate change. You have been working towards better neighbourhoods, a healthier city and a greener future. EcoFest is our chance to come together, celebrate our successes and demonstrate the scale, strength and diversity of the environmental movement in Ottawa.
Different from previous annual dinner, this year’s EcoFest is not a sit-down dinner. There will be food and drink booths serving a variety of vegetarian or vegan small plates, beer, wine and other drinks, all for $5. Your ticket includes 3 food/drink tokens, and more are available for purchase at the venue. Guests are welcome to mingle, check out the booths, get food or drinks, and come inside the speaker area to listen to the speeches throughout the evening.

Tickets are $35, which includes tokens for food and drinks and gives you a free ride to and from the event on OC Transpo buses. Stay tuned for announcements on speakers, vendors, prizes, and all the fun we are cooking up at ecologyottawa.ca/eco-fest.
