Pickering Program Wins the Art of Transition Sustainability Award

Pickering, ON, November 13, 2013 – The City of Pickering’s Sustainable Neighbourhoods program won ‘Best use of creativity to advance social and environmental sustainability’ at the third annual Durham Art of Transition Creative Awards ceremony held last Friday. 

The Durham Art of Transition Creative Awards recognizes the importance of arts and culture, innovation, and creative leaders who are making a difference in their community.   Launched earlier in the year, the City’s Celebrating Sustainable Neighbourhoods Program is an innovative, and now award-winning, community engagement effort that encourages neighbourhood groups to complete sustainable activities within their community. 

Through this program, the City has seen neighbours unite for the greater good of the community, committing their time to projects and activities that contribute to a healthy environment, economy, and society, overall furthering Pickering's journey to becoming a more sustainable City. 

“I am thrilled that the Celebrating Sustainable Neighbourhoods Program won an award for its creative approach to fostering community engagement and sustainability,” said Councillor Doug Dickerson, Chair of the Sustainable Pickering Advisory Committee. “Neighbourhood groups have committed to a number of initiatives ranging from local food and urban gardening to tree planting and community beautification projects. I am proud and excited to have their efforts recognized by the greater community.” 

The Celebrating Sustainable Neighbourhoods program wraps up at the end of November, with a celebration event to follow in the New Year to recognize the group successes, and select a winning neighbourhood project. 

The City of Pickering is a recognized national leader in sustainability having previously won the FCM-CH2M Hill Sustainable Community Planning Award.  Please visit pickering.ca/sustainability for more information on the program.
