Are you environmentally minded and want to make a difference? Do you have free time and an iron will to get involved with Ottawa's local environmental organization? Then this offer is for YOU!

Ecology Ottawa is a not-for-profit organization whose mandate is to make Ottawa the GREEN capital of Canada and we have recently launched our green infrastructure program. Whats green infrastructure? Living and built systems that slow down, soak up, and filer rain water where it falls (for more information: https://ecologyottawa.ca/campaigns/living-city/green-infrastructure/). Why is this important? Because Ottawa will be getting more rain events at an increased volume and our sewer systems were not designed to handle all this rain.

What are planning on doing about this? We need to educate Ottawa residents about green infrastructure, and get them to implement home level adaptations such as planting trees, installing downspout redirects and splash guards. Ecology Ottawa will be going door-to-door in the community of Britannia and we are looking for keen and passionate volunteers to help us with this program.

If you want to make a difference fighting climate change on a local level, are comfortable speaking to strangers, and have some evening and weekend time free, please contact Héloïse and join our team!!


Est-ce-que tu te soucis de l'environnement et tu as envie de faire la différence ? Tu as du temps libre et une volonté de fer de t'impliquer dans l'organisation environnementale locale d'Ottawa ? Alors, cette offre est pour TOI !

Écologie Ottawa est une organisation non lucrative qui a pour mission de faire d'Ottawa la capitale VERTE du Canada, et nous avons récemment lancé notre programme infrastructures vertes. Que sont les infrastructures vertes ? Ce sont des systèmes vivants et bâtis qui ralentissent, absorbent et filtrent l'eau pluviale là où elle tombe (pour plus d'informations : https://ecologieottawa.ca/infrastructures-vertes/). Pourquoi c'est important ? Parce qu'Ottawa va connaitre de plus en plus de chutes de pluie et que nos systèmes d'égouts n'ont pas été conçus pour supporter un tel volume.

Que compte-t-on faire à ce sujet? Nous devons éduquer les résidents d'Ottawa à propos des infrastructures vertes, et les convaincre d'en mettre en place chez eux : planter des arbres, installer des redirections de tuyaux de descente fluviale et des gardes-boue. Écologie Ottawa va faire du porte à porte dans la communauté de Britannia, et nous recherchons des bénévoles enthousiastes et passionnés pour nous aider dans ce programme.

Si tu veux faire la différence et combattre le changement climatique à l'échelle locale, si tu es à l'aise pour parler à des inconnus, et si tu as des soirées ou des weekends de libres, alors contacte Héloïse et rejoins notre équipe !!
