Did you get a chance to enjoy the Tall Ships this past weekend? A couple of us were oh so lucky and got tickets to see Hey Rosetta on George's Island.
Hint: This afternoon's member gave birth to projects such as The Grainery Food Co-op and the Dalhousie Women's Centre.
The Basics: "The Nova Scotia Public Interest Research Group, or NSPIRG (pronounced ‘enness perg’) is a non-profit, non-partisan and non-governmental organization. Our mandate is to link research with action for social and environmental justice within an anti-oppression framework."
Research: We fund and initiate original research and investigation into environmental and social issues.
Education: We translate our research into education for all through independent publications and public events.
Action: Guided by our research, we develop and support campaigns and actions that address social or environmental injustices.
WHY WE LOVE NSPIRG:
- Their three-pronged approach is clear
- An impressive list of projects started at NSPIRG and are now flourishing
- They're a one-stop hub for resources
The wonderful staff at NSPIRG (Andrew and Alia)
