News & Information
Where do we go from here?
CPN’s Second Award: $1035 - On June 5th Sustainable Cobourg’s Bicycle Action Committee, along with Cycle Transitions, Northumberland Hills Cycling Club and Cobourg Cycling Club hosted a critical mass bicycle ride through the streets of Cobourg. Before, during and after, participants were presented with information about the benefits of cycling – as an alternative to driving and for one’s health. Participants met at Victoria Park band shell, then rode a planned 5km or 10 km route around town highlighting both safe and unsafe infrastructure. Cobourg Police and ride marshals escorted the ride around town ensuring safety. Estimate was that over one hundred riders of all ages participated in the event. The funding covered event permit, insurance, printing and promotional T-shirt subsidies.
The Power of Community
Most of us realize that there is an inherent value in local community, something that goes beyond the convenience of shops, schools, streetlights and hospitals. It’s about belonging, about being connected, comfortable and appreciative of the place we call home.
At its core, every community has power, a power rooted in its people working together, from services clubs and special events to charities and not-for-profits. It is this grassroots power that makes many things possible and that has the capacity to change the status quo into something better.
For our Children
Through community-powered investments in sustainability, Northumberland residents will achieve a better quality of life for all, and especially for our children, grandchildren and their children. Now is the time to invest in our future and begin to pay it forward.
CPN membership is open to everyone over the age of 16. Membership is a one-time, per person fee of $10.00. Soon our website will allow you to join online but in the meantime just send us an email and we will send you membership information.
No work commitment is expected with your co-op membership, however, members are encouraged to voice their opinions on how the co-op should invest our assets to promote sustainability in our communities. This can be done by participating in Annual and Special Member Meetings, by joining Board sub-committees when the need arises or by sitting on the Board of Directors.
