Event description

Description

AEN member groups work on a broad range of inter-connected issues covering a wide geographic area. The urgency of our environmental objectives requires that we work together strategically and effectively. Meeting face-to-face is very important to building community, taking action, and making a collective impact.

AEN's Fall Assembly brings together environmental advocates from across the province, and provides opportunities for groups to share knowledge, strategize and plan collective action. This year's program includes sessions on truth and reconciliation in environmental work, youth engagement, digital campaigning, and Alberta's political climate.

AEN Members are eligible for support for travel and accommodation expenses while attending the Assembly. See below for more details.
