Eco-nomics Awards and 3 Steps Presentation

by okanagancollegesustainability

On April 29, 2009, the first Eco-nomics Awards presentation was held at the Delta Grande Hotel in Kelowna, BC. 

The awards, co-organized by Okanagan College students (members of the SIFE, Students in Free Enterprise group) and the Kelowna Chambre of Commerce, recognized businesses in the community who are leaders in environmentally sustainable practices.

During the awards luncheon, Okanagan College Sustainability Team Leader Arnica Rowan delivered a keynote address about how all businesses can take steps towards sustainability, no matter how big or small their organization. 

The presentation also profiled the 3 Steps Forward campaign. A copy of her powerpoint presentation is available here.

Our sincere congratulations to the award finalists and recipients! Also, a “shout out” to SIFE Okanagan – a wonderful group of students who value environmental sustainability.
