I'm reaching out to let you know about an environmental careers event that Fusion Halifax<http://fusionhalifax.ca/> is hosting this Saturday, November 4. The event is called Sustainable Steps: Exploring green careers in Nova Scotia<https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sustainable-steps-exploring-green-careers-in-nova-scotia-tickets-38854291231> and it will take place from 1-4 p.m. tomorrow, with registration at 12:30. The event will take place at Dalhousie's Student Union Building Council Chambers (2nd floor) at 6136 University Ave. in Halifax.

The event is primarily intended for young professionals and students but it is open to all - it will be a great opportunity to learn more about different environmental career paths in Nova Scotia and the difference between pursuing sustainability through entrepreneurship, non-profit organizations, government, academia and private consulting.
