A group that discusses energy conservation issues.
Allyson Young and Robert Boulter of Riverview, New Brunswick, decided that, for their particular community, energy conservation and alternative lifestyles were two ideas for which the time had come. On February 15, 1977 they planned a public meeting to discuss how local people were applying these ideas in very practical terms. Instead of the 30 people they expected, about, 85 showed up to share information and expertise and to offer advice or their services. Alternative Energy Association held a second meeting on March 3 to organize a public awareness program and to determine ways to introduce energy conservation and alternative lifestyles in primary and secondary school curriculums.
