WINDOW TO A HEALTHIER WORLD

NORTH BAY—December 9, 2003—Individuals interested in a greener, healthier environment now have an easy way to connect with the province’s many environmental groups and organizations.

The Ontario Environment Network announced today the launch of a comprehensive guide to over 700 groups, organizations and websites across the province. Available on-line or in print, the new Ontario Environmental Directory is the starting point for anyone interested in research, communication and action on environmental issues.

"Whatever your interest—from clean air to toxic waste, from wilderness to urban transport, from green living to green economics—this directory will be of interest to you", says the Coordinator of the Ontario Environment Network, Phillip Penna. "It makes it easy to find groups and resources in your town, region or area of concern".

The directory is unique because it brings together the many different opinions and voices on environmental issues in one place, says Peter Blanchard, the directory's designer.

"We want people to participate in Ontario's vibrant environmental community. Whether you're a parent or student, businessperson or politician, this directory is for you. It's for anyone and everyone interested in a greener, healthier world," he says.

The directory was made possible by a generous contribution from the Helen McCrea Peacock Foundation.

Visit the Ontario Environmental Directory at www.oen.ca. A print edition is available for order on the web or by calling 705-840-2888.
