Who are we?
Welcome to the home base of Responsible Energy Action (REA), an education and action group that focuses on how we obtain and use energy.
Our regular meetings are usually held the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. However, we’re taking a break from face-to-face meetings over the winter. Our next regular meeting will be the second Wednesday in April at 5:15 p.m. at the People’s Place Library, Antigonish. Please join us if you can! All are welcome. In the meanwhile, you can stay in touch via our facebook page and listserv.
From the time the group formed in late 2011 through late 2014, we worked hard to educate ourselves and our community on the environmental, health, economic and social aspects of unconventional petroleum extraction.
In keeping with our goals, we have also studied and supported energy efficiency, sustainable alternatives, and energy-related climate change initiatives. As we navigate these issues, we retain a focus on equitable access to energy and employment opportunities in the renewable energy sector. We would like to see our community at the forefront of both mitigating and adapting to climate change.
We collaborate with local governments, the Mi’kmaq Nation, and with other organizations on all these issues.
