Canada's Green, Environmental Events Calendar

This is the largest and longest running calendar of green and environmental events in Canada. For over 14 years, the Calendar has been used by hundreds of Canadian environmental groups, organizations, green businesses and educational institutions. Over 1,500 events, courses and conferences are posted each year.

Need to promote an environmental event, workshop, course or conference? Promote it here, there's no charge. The Calendar is frequented by green-minded Canadians, environmentalists and sustainability professionals who very much want to hear about your event.

To submit an event, just go the event form and fill in the info (as brief or as long as you like). Our staff will check and format your listing within 24 hours and contact you if there are any problems. For best results, please post as soon as you can — your event will stay on the calendar until the date(s) of the event.

The calendar can be seen at, the Canadian Environmental Network, other affiliate sites, plus Facebook and Twitter feeds.

Use the calendar to:

  • Find eco-events, films, workshops, courses, conferences, festivals and activities
  • Search by theme, province or location
  • Check back weekly (many events are posted on short notice)
  • Make the leap from participant, to volunteer, to organizer
  • Promote your own event, and plan ahead to avoid date conflicts
  • Find your niche and make a difference!

The Calendar began in 1998 as the People- and Planet-Friendly Events, a weekly e-mail bulletin of green, environmental and sustainable events. By 2001 it had thousands of subscribers, and in 2002 the web calendar was launched. In 2008 the Calendar was greatly expanded and improved. In 2010 the Canadian Environmental Network became a partner organization.

The calendar is a place where groups and organizations from across Canada can publicize their events free of charge. It used by a broad community of individuals, organizations and journalists from across Canada. The focus of the calendar is environment, conservation, sustainability and related themes. For example: Climate Change, Conservation, Ecotourism, Environmental Education, Green Building, Green Business, Renewable Energy, Sustainable Agriculture, Sustainable Forestry, Sustainable Transportation, Waste Reduction & Recycling, Water Pollution, Wilderness and Wildlife Conservation.

The Calendar is a free service offered for the benefit of all Canadians. Please join with other green-minded Canadians helping build a healthier, more sustainable world!
