The Emerald Awards were presented on June 1st, during Environment Week. On top of all the excitement of winning this award, CRAZ hosted the Annual General Meeting with representatives from industry, government, NGO’s and the public all attending to learn about trending air quality data, future CRAZ initiatives and learning more about the air. On June 2nd, CRAZ represented Clean Air Day at the City of Calgary Mayors Environment Expo. We were given the opportunity to welcome thousands of students and teach about air quality in Calgary and the region.
The word is out, our air quality is important and what we all can do matters to our air and to our health.
“It is an honor to be recognized for the hard work that all the members, volunteers and staff undertake to ensure the air we breathe is not harmful to us.” Jill Bloor, CRAZ Executive Director
