What is The Reconnection Project?
The Reconnection Project, created by Environmental Defence, connects people with nature and their neighbours by making it easy to learn about upcoming local events.
What is a Regional Coordinator?
Each of our regions has a Regional Coordinator who is your personal guide to what’s going on in your area.
As we speak, Regional Coordinators across Ontario are looking high and low for hikes, live music, photography, farmers’ markets, garden tours, bike rides and other healthy and fulfilling activities to share with you.
How will the Regional Coordinator contact me?
You need to sign up for the Reconnect Newsletter in your region in order to receive emails of recommended events.
You’ll also have a chance to meet them in person at the events! They are well-informed about local news and politics and can answer questions you might have about community-building and civic engagement.
What’s the best way to get involved?
Sign up for our Reconnect Newsletter by clicking on your region here.
What time capacity is required to join?
That’s entirely up to you! You can sign up for the newsletter and only attend events that appeal to you, or attend them all and maybe even volunteer!
Is there a cost?
No, signing up for a Reconnect newsletter is completely FREE. Our coordinators will also prioritize free (and cheap) events for inclusion in the newsletter.
Where does the Reconnection Project operate?
Take a look at the places you can find us here.
For now, the Reconnection Project is only running in Ontario, but we may eventually expand this program to other provinces.
Why is Environmental Defence running a project like this?
Environmental Defence is a leading Canadian environmental advocacy organization that works with government, industry and individuals to defend clean water, a safe climate and healthy communities.
We know that community connection and civic engagement is at the heart of real and effective environmental change. By connecting people with nature and neighbours, we can build more resilient communities in a changing climate.
