The concept of this project is simple. Choose one BEC Theme of Sustainability (Habitat, Waste, Recreation, Health etc.) and organize a free public workshop on it. Look for contributions for refreshments. Enlist a few experts to talk about different aspects of that Theme. Follow those presentations with discussions by everyone at the workshop. If there is enough time, move on to implementation ideas for proposed projects. BEC Canada can give you a manual and advice. You can help the public get an in-depth understanding of an aspect of sustainability that interests them.
