Pollution Probe Rising Star 2019 Nomination

After less than seven months of operation, Shake Up The Establishment was honoured with its very first award nomination at the Pollution Probe Annual Gala in November of 2019.  Pollution Probe is a Canadian charitable environmental organization. For the past 50 years, they have approached environmental challenges with research, education and advocacy bringing all players from corporate to governance to discuss possible remedies and solutions to big environmental problems. 
Shake Up The Establishment finished runner-up to none other than Autumn Peltier. We were honoured to have even have been considered in such a category. Other awards that evening went to former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, honoured for his work in conservation and environmental reform during his term as Prime minister. Our Art and Design Executive, Clara MacKinnon, attended the Gala on behalf of Shake Up The Establishment and is featured in the centre of the photo.
