Lakehead Orillia hosts Sustainability Summit

Lakehead University Orillia will host the first annual Severn Sound Sustainability Summit on Thursday, October 18 from 6 to 9 pm at the University Avenue campus.

The Summit will provide an update on some of the initiatives taking place in the Severn Sound watershed; a keynote speech by Tom Rand, author of Kick the Fossil Fuel Habit and owner of North America’s greenest hotel; and a public forum to discuss tree-cutting by-laws. The event is open to the public and there is no cost to attend.
Lakehead University Orillia is a member organization of Sustainable Severn Sound, along with the nine municipalities in the Severn Sound watershed, the County of Simcoe, and other community organizations.
The purpose of Sustainable Severn Sound is to help communities in the watershed implement the goals and actions of the Severn Sound Sustainability Plan. The implementation of the Plan will help to protect and enhance the natural environment, strengthen the local economy, and improve the quality of life for all residents in the area.
