C-Vert held its 4th Environmental Actions Forum on Earth Day, April 22nd 2012. There were over 400 participants, including all six C-Vert 2011-12 groups. Hundreds of environmental actions were accomplished by all, including: bike repairs, ecological beauty products and natural pesticides, indigenous bird nests and feeders, waste reduction by crafting ecodesign products, discovering the St-Michel environmental complex ecosystem and production of crafts using First Nations expertise.
The Forum also encouraged ecological imagination and solidarity. An ecocitizen world café united young people aged 14 to 16 years old to discuss how to improve our environment with elected officials from all levels of government. An environmental slam workshop and contest with the artist Ivy helped us celebrate our actions to the rhythms and sounds of ecological creativity.

Throughout the Forum, C-Vert+ members joined this year’s C-Vert youth to help organise and manage this event. Not only did they organise the C-Vert kiosk, but after a workshop with professional photographers, C-Vert+ youth held an auction of photos showcasing our natural urban environment. The silent auction proceeds will help finance C-Vert+ expeditions and projects. To see some of the photos taken by C-Vert+ youth, click here.
The 4th Environmental Action Forum concluded with a Gala. Many dignitaries were on hand and all enjoyed having been part of the event. We all celebrated accomplishing so many actions together. A gift certificate from Dumoulin Bicyclettes was given to a lucky audience member while a Mountain Equipement Coop gift certificate was given to a lucky “early bird” participant. C-Vert also handed out fine herb plants in an organic decomposing peat pot to all Gala participants so that they could continue greening the environment.

eut-être avez-vous déjà remarqué que les lieux publics de notre quotidien ne sont pas toujours aussi attrayants que ce que l’on souhaiterait. Souvent, des déchets ou des graffitis parsèment nos parcs. Certains arbres nous paraissent flétris, les fleurs fanées. C’est le constat que nous avons fait, le groupe C-Vert de Mercier - Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (M-HM).
