One Million Acts of Green
The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos, Canada's late-night talk show, and Cisco spearheaded this massive, nationwide environmental movement. Starting in October 21, 2008, CBC and The Hour mobilized Canadians to commit One Million Acts of Green. In partnership with Cisco, and the power of their Human Network Effect, the collective goal is to change how we live and how we treat the planet, one act at a time.

Genuine Progress Indicators
The Genuine Progress Indicator (GPI) measures how well we are doing as individuals, families, communities and as a province using 51 economic, social and environmental indicators. Traditional economic indicators of progress such as the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) measure only one factor — the flow of money through the economy. This means car crashes, oil spills and floods all increase the GDP!
