Event description

Description

Alberta Ecotrust is proud to announce our third annual Environmental Gathering: Create the Future.

Program details and keynote speakers will be available at http://albertaecotrust.com/gathering2018/.

There is a need for a fundamental shift in the way Alberta’s citizens and organizations think about environmental issues and solutions. Rather than simply fight against what we as a society don’t want, we have to design and build what we collectively do want – a just, prosperous and sustainable future. An Alberta that celebrates the critical value of healthy communities and ecosystems, social and technical innovation, and includes all people, organizations and governments embracing truly sustainable practices for decades to come!

Has Alberta reached a tipping point on climate change and its impact on water and land use? We think so. At previous Gatherings, we focused on changing the climate of how Albertans work together, and breaking through barriers that hold us back. The format of this year’s Gathering will look different than previous years. There will be less traditional speaking spaces (such as panels), and more time spent on idea cultivation, effective collaboration, and re-imagination. Now is the time to roll up our sleeves and get to work creating a just, prosperous and sustainable future that includes all people. We see a new energy building in our work across the province for this kind of change.

You should be there! Experience another exciting and strategic opportunity to connect with others who share your passion for the environment. Collectively, we will develop and deepen the skills required to change our course to sustainability and create the future we want, and more importantly – need.

Next March, join us to create Alberta’s environmental future through a solutions-building and activity-based gathering.

WHERE:

Thursday Evening Reception – National Music Centre, Calgary

Friday and Saturday – Mount Royal University, Calgary
