NDG SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT TABLE

The sustainable development table was restarted in 2022 with the goal of bringing together the residents and organisations working towards making NDG environmentally conscious and sustainable.  

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT TABLE / TABLE DE DÉVELOPPEMENT DURABLE
The NDG Sustainable Development Table envisions a greener and more sustainable future for our community. By fostering collaboration among residents and organizations, we strive to create environmentally conscious initiatives that will positively impact NDG's ecological and social well-being. Together, we aim to build a thriving and resilient neighborhood that prioritizes sustainability and preserves the beauty of our surroundings for generations to come.

ACTIVITIES - PROJECTS - EVENTS

FEBRUARY 20, 2024

Join us for the first session of the NDG Climate Café on February 20th at 7:00 PM! Everyone is welcome and everyone’s perspective matters!

Facilitated by Kara Johnston of Resilience NDG, the first NDG Climate Café will be a chance for community members to gather and explore how we can react to climate change using the lens of Active Hope. We will use a simple, yet powerful, conversational process developed by eco-activist Joanna Macy and resilience specialist Chris Johnstone, authors of the book Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We’re in with Unexpected Resilience and Creative Power. This process can help move us through stuckness, despair, and resignation, strengthening our ability to bring about positive change both individually and collectively. As we connect with others, we break down our perception of isolation and make room for empowered, creative responses. "Child care": There will be a “kids corner” available for children to colour and draw, and a teenager available to oversee and help them.

Please email michellepawlowsky@ndg.ca to RSVP so we can plan accordingly for drinks, snacks, and seating. However, drop-ins are always welcome!

Green fair 2023 in NDG

JUNE 3, 2023

Come meet the residents and organisations working towards making NDG environmentally conscious, sustainable, and food secure. There will be information kiosks, creative and environmental workshops, a play for children presented by Meute Monde, and music by local music collective NDG Electronik!
The fair will take place in front of the chalet at NDG Park from 12PM to 4PM on June 3rd.

LAST YEAR STATISTIC

After the impact of COVID-19, in 2021, our outreach team focused on bringing the community back together through different kiosks and outdoor festive events such as neighborhood barbecue, the wheel game and community gardening.
Wheel game: Having spent all of last summer surveying residents the team felt that general outreach needed some new tools. We created the wheel game as a result!
In total 303 residents were surveyed
we had approximately 35 winners of gift cards or electronic Tablets

Vision for future outreach in NDG

Partnership with other organizations

Partnership is a critical component of successful outreach efforts in the NDG neighborhood. The NDG Community Council actively seeks partnerships with other community organizations to maximize outreach opportunities and better serve the needs of residents. For instance, the council provides kiosks during other organizations' events, and community workers from other organizations can join together for outreach initiatives. By working collaboratively, the Council can promote resources not only from its own organization but also from other organizations in NDG. This is made possible through effective communication and trust-building efforts among community organizations. By sharing information about available resources and collaborating on outreach initiatives, community organizations can help to ensure that residents are aware of and have access to the services they need. Partnership is a crucial aspect of building a connected and supportive community in NDG.

Partnership with residents

Partnership with residents is another essential aspect of successful outreach efforts in the NDG neighborhood. The NDG Community Council works to involve residents in outreach activities, such as kiosks and door-to-door campaigns, by recruiting volunteers from the community. This approach not only enables the council to expand its outreach efforts but also empowers residents to actively participate in the community and learn more about the services offered by the council. By involving residents in outreach initiatives, the council can build trust, establish relationships, and gain valuable insights into the needs of the community. This partnership approach fosters a sense of ownership and pride among residents and promotes a more connected and engaged community in NDG.
