Hélène Connor Lajambe, we’ll miss you

It is with great sadness that Energy in Demand announces the passing of Hélène Connor Lajambe, recipient of the 2012 Légion d’Honneur (France) in recognition of her four decades of visionary work in promoting environmental protection, sustainable energy and participatory governance.

Hélène was returning from a trip to Tibet – a life-long dream – when she collapsed and passed shortly afterwards.  Many of you have known Hélène through her work spanning the decades from the creation of the Société pour vaincre la pollution and co-founding of the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility to her work at the OCED and her creation of HELIO International.

As you can imagine her family and friends are in shock.  Further details will be posted in this newsletter as they develop.
