About the Ecology Action Centre
The Ecology Action Centre has acted as a voice for Nova Scotia's environment for over 38 years. The EAC was voted #1 Activist Organization by readers of The Coast magazine for six years running. Since 1971, the EAC has been working to build a healthier, more sustainable Nova Scotia.
Today we have over 1000 members, 250 volunteers and staff, and seven active teams and committees. The Ecology Action Centre works closely with social and natural scientists and makes strong use of science in communicating its message to the public.
The Centre's earliest projects included recycling, composting, and energy conservation, and these are now widely recognized environmental issues. Our current areas of focus include Built Environment, Marine Issues, Coastal Issues, Wilderness, Food, Transportation and Energy Issues. Action on climate change is not a committee or project of the Ecology Action Centre, but something that is part of every issue we work on.
