Listening to Our Neighbours Wins Award

“Listening to Our Neighbours, Exploring the Changing Climate in Antigonish, NS” has won the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities Climate Change Leaders Award!  This award will be accepted at the UNSM Annual meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 4, by Warden Russell Boucher and Tammy Feltmate, the municipality’s Director of Environment, Safety and Community Affairs.  Congrats to all involved for this recognition!

Shot and directed by Corinne Dunphy and Antigonish Climate Resilience, and proudly supported by the Municipality of the County of Antigonish, this is a story about Antigonish — our people, land, water and livelihoods – and explores what people are doing locally to prepare for climate change, to deal with its consequences and to help slow its impacts.

This film was made possible through funding from the Municipality of the County of Antigonish; Nova Scotia Department of Environment; Central Home Improvement; The Townhouse Brewpub and Eatery; Antigonish International Film Festival; Sustainable Antigonish; The Sisters of St. Martha; and Public Health Services – Nova Scotia Health Authority.
