Call for Submissions: Green Buildings

Picking up where we left off with our last issue on Green Buildings, Alternatives is looking to explore how far we’ve come and to predict where we’re headed when it comes to environmentally friendly design. We want to know about new laws and regulations governing the design and construction of buildings, and hope to have space to profile a few of the best examples of green buildings from Canada and beyond. We’re also interested in who is leading the charge to greener buildings. Deadline: July 31st
For more details and submission guidelines visit alternativesjournal.ca

Rocking the Environment – note to subscribers

In an unfortunate twist of timing, our latest issue – Rocking the Environment – was put in the mail just before the Canada Post lockout. We have been assured that the issue IS on its way to you. Thanks to you all for your patience and understanding. We hope you find the issue worth the wait!

In the meantime, you can still find the issue on newsstands in independent book retailers and at Chapters/Indigo stores across Canada. Click here to find out what’s in the issue. To hear the music, subscribe today and get it as your first issue, or find it on your local newsstand.
