Burnaby Environment Week is an annual week-long program of environmentally-themed community activities held in early June to coincide with Canadian Environment Week. Activities are coordinated by City staff who work with our many community partners to deliver activities that are family oriented, informative and encourage community participation.
2014 Environment Week ~ Saturday, May 31 to Saturday, June 7
Planning for 2014 Environment Week is underway. This year’s theme is Eco-Wise in Your Community, which encourages citizens to inform and empower themselves to incorporate new and environmentally friendly ideas and practices into their daily lives. Recognizing that the concept of ‘environmental sustainability’ and the need for individual action can, at times, be overwhelming, the Eco-Wise in Your Community program will be focus on small but significant changes that individuals can choose to make part of their daily lives.
