Seriously, I am an eco-innovator. Don’t take my word for it. Ask Chris Benjamin!
I am flattered to be in the company of 34 others profiled in author/journalist Chris Benjamin’s new book, Eco-Innovators: Sustainability in Atlantic Canada. The book describes very different initiatives and work that has contributed to making Atlantic Canada a more sustainable place. As Chris writes in his blog:
Eco-Innovators is a collection of stories about the region’s most forward-thinking leaders in sustainability. These entrepreneurs and educators, activists and agitators, farmers and fishers have all made measurable contributions in their respective fields of interest and in motivating others to make change.
Eco-innovators launches on October 11th with a celebration and panel discussion in Halifax (see details about the book and launch here (http://www NULL.chrisbenjaminwriting NULL.com/chris-benjamin-writing-blog/eco-innovators-sustainability-in-atlantic-canada-the-book-launch-)). If you are in the area, please come out, I will be on the panel and would love to chat!
On a related note, I am about 75% through Chris’s novel Drive By Saviours (http://www NULL.chrisbenjaminwriting NULL.com/drive-by-saviours NULL.php), which has had rave reviews. It is a gripping story of two people of very different backgrounds, countries and experiences, who meet by chance on a Toronto subway car. The attention to detail in the story reflects Chris’s devotion to research and his experience of living in the countries profiled. I heartily recommend it!
