Today is the final day of the 23rd annual Mayor’s Environment Expo and Mayor Naheed Nenshi has been on hand every day to welcome groups of students ready to strut their eco-stuff.

“So many Calgarians are taking action to help protect the environment, and this expo highlights just some of the great work being done by our youth,” says Mayor Nenshi. “The environmental leadership of Calgarians of all ages is inspiring.”

Over the past three days, Mayor Nenshi spent time with youth leaders to explore environmental actions including composting, energy conservation, and waste reduction. Presentations were given by most of the eleven schools participating in the Expo’s year-long Showcase School program. Each of the projects undertaken by the Showcase Schools are featured on Calgary.ca.

The Mayor’s Environment Expo is Calgary’s premiere event in celebration of National Environment Week. All Calgarians are encouraged to take action to improve the environment in our city. It may even be one of your 3 Things for Calgary!

The Expo was open to the public at the Municipal Building between June 5 and 7.
