Sharing sustainable project ideas

Steve from Toronto will be talking about their project 'Tossers can be binners'.
Join Sustainable Neighbourhood and other community volunteers on 15 May to learn from some great project successes.
We'll have presentations and a Q&A from:
  • Toronto's public place littering and recycling project
  • the Redhead group's innovative fundraising strategies, and
  • Dudley's Super Street Sale events.
More information and session details.
Learn how your group can run a suburb-wide Super Street Sale
