Thanks to Polyvalente W.A. Losier Environment Committee for inviting me to visit and participate in their Eco-Expo. I heard more than 800 students floated through the gym yesterday – no wonder my voice is really hoarse today! Here are some photos of a few of the folks I had the chance to meet and chat with! – Joanna

Want to uncover a story about a co-op or credit union in your community!

The United Nations has declared 2012 The Year of Co-operatives (YAY!!) To celebrate, the Co-operative Enterprise Council of NB (CECNB) is recruiting young people full of curiosity, passion, creativity and artistic skills. Co-operatives have a fascinating history in NB and most people don't even know about it! For example, did you know that:
  • The Sussex Co-op is the oldest co-operative in the entire world?!!!!
  • A group of students started their own co-op theatre company to create work for themselves and it has become one of Moncton's most popular theatres?
  • First nations fishermen recently joined together to establish a fishing co-op that employs local people and invests its profits back into youth and children in their community?
  • A co-op in New Brunswick is building the first virtual map of human knowledge for the Web?

This is something that has come through where youth can participate Online or by Phone From Anywhere Worldwide - check it out
