The Eco Market: A first of it's kind Green Marketplace and Conference
Updated: Apr 24
The Eco Market is dedicated to supporting, uplifting, and showcasing Canadian green innovation, entrepreneurship, and community action. We have community-building events every month, ranging from green networking events, large speaker showcases to pitch competitions, host an environmental science podcast as well as a highly curated annual conference every April.
The Eco Market 2019 was the Canadian green event of the year! It took place at the Waterloo Region Museum and featured a highly curated marketplace, speakers, interactive activities, and art. This event was FREE to attend.
Our 2019 conference saw our very first Eco-Art installations and performances; "From Ego to Eco", a partnership The Creative Capital of Canada, a large message painted on wooden palates at the entrance to the conference. This display read "Ego to Eco" and it was created to help shift our perspective from me to us.
We also presented C.D Good and Jennifer Davis in "Conversations with Grief and Hope" - a dramatic reading of their illustrated story, ( When Ick Met Spark), the duo present a reflective dialogue between two strange characters, Ick and Spark. The dramatic reading gives voice to the fear and sadness that comes from knowing how much destruction is taking place in our environment. The story reflects a way to feel the truth, and at the same time, be empowered to choose ways towards a more balanced and transformed future.
