Mobius Awards Speaker Announcement & Tickets Available Now!

Tickets are now available for the 2017 Mobius Awards of Environmental Excellence, celebrating Nova Scotia's leaders in recycling and waste diversion!

Hosted by Divert NS, the annual awards are held to recognize environmental leaders in Nova Scotia. The seven award categories include Large and Small business of the year; Innovator of the Year; Emerging Environmental Leader, and more. 

This year, Divert NS is excited to welcome keynote speaker Adam Minter, author of the critically-acclaimed and best-selling Junkyard Planet. Adam will reflect on his journey from a boyhood in a small family junkyard to his role as the foremost chronicler of the multi-billion dollar global recycling trader. Along the way, he'll share never-before-seen images and videos he's taken in some of the world's most important - but otherwise off-limits - recycling facilities. He'll share a message of optimism about recycling, and demonstrate why repair, re-use, and refurbishment are the route to a circular economy for Canada, and the world.

The 2017 Mobius Awards of Environmental Excellence will take place:

Tuesday, October 24, 2017
Doors open at 5:00 p.m.
Event starts at 6:00 p.m.

Halifax Marriott Harbourfront
1919 Upper Water Street Halifax, Nova Scotia
