"The importance of sustainability initiatives and educational opportunities for residents within the community continues to be a priority," said Mayor Clifford Lee. "These workshops are about coming together with community members to share knowledge on ways to reduce our impact on the environment."
Workshops are free to attend and will be held at various venues in Charlottetown. Pre-registration is required as space is limited. To register visit www.charlottetown.ca and click the "Sustainability Workshop Series" button on the homepage.
