“Our Local Committee organized a fashion show featuring only ethically made clothing to raise awareness on unethical labour in the fashion industry. We also used the evening to promote fair trade and local initiatives in Winnipeg focusing on ethical consumption, to highlight ethical considerations in the consumer choices we make everyday.”

“Myriam inspires me and supports me through various projects. At any time, I can see her leading the zero-waste and the Fairtrade thematic weeks, pushing to make our CEGEP greener, and supporting the environmental action and consultation committee (of which I am also a member). She gives her best on a daily basis to raise awareness about environmental issues and find alternatives with us, the young people. She represents a model of determination, support and social involvement."
