Our Vision: Stronger Together

Through this Forum and Summit, we hope to bring together the Atlantic Outdoor Sector and those impacted by it; in order to find solutions to work stronger together. In a sector where funding is a constant challenge, but its impacts are far-reaching, we need to begin to think strategically on how the sector can work more collaboratively. We hope to accomplish this with your help at the first bi-annual Atlantic Outdoor Forum (AOF).

Notre vision : Ensemble, nous sommes plus forts

Grâce à ce forum et à ce sommet, nous espérons réunir le secteur du plein air de l'Atlantique et ceux qui sont touchés par ce secteur, afin de trouver des solutions pour travailler ensemble plus fort. Dans un secteur où le financement est un défi constant, mais dont les répercussions sont d'une grande portée, nous devons commencer à réfléchir stratégiquement à la façon dont le secteur peut travailler davantage en collaboration. Nous espérons accomplir cela avec votre aide lors du premier forum biannuel de l'Atlantic Outdoor Forum (AOF).

The Forum

Through the various workshops and presentations offered at the AOF we hope to give attendees information, tools, resources and most importantly personal connections to help them better understand the Atlantic Outdoor Sector. Our small provinces share similar challenges and obstacles that we all have experience dealing with in our own ways. This Forum will open the discussion and dialogue around these experiences, making us all better equipped to deal with the variation of issues we all face, while encouraging our communities to work together toward common goals. After all, as our vision states, we are Stronger Together!

Le Forum

Grâce aux divers ateliers et présentations offerts à l'AOF, nous espérons donner aux participants de l'information, des outils, des ressources et surtout des liens personnels pour les aider à mieux comprendre le secteur du plein air de l'Atlantique. Nos petites provinces ont en commun des défis et des obstacles semblables que nous avons tous vécus à notre façon. Ce forum ouvrira la discussion et le dialogue autour de ces expériences, ce qui nous rendra tous mieux équipés pour faire face à la variation des problèmes auxquels nous sommes tous confrontés, tout en encourageant nos communautés à travailler ensemble vers des objectifs communs. Après tout, comme le dit notre vision, nous sommes plus forts ensemble !

The Summit

The Summit will invite thought leaders involved in Outdoor Sector to meet the day before the forum to spark discussions on creating a structure that helps the sector more easily work together and toward common goals. At the conclusion of the Summit, we hope to have created a formalized structure for an Atlantic Outdoor Collective comprised of environmental leaders, recreation and outdoor professionals and public policy makers. This Collective would oversee the curate shared best practices based upon the particular interests and needs of communities and organizations in Atlantic Canada’s Outdoor sector (e.g. Parks, Trails, Municipalities, conserved spaces and species, etc.)

Le Sommet

Le Sommet invitera les leaders d'opinion impliqués dans le secteur du plein air à se réunir la veille du forum afin de susciter des discussions sur la création d'une structure qui aide le secteur à travailler plus facilement ensemble et à atteindre des objectifs communs. À la fin du Sommet, nous espérons avoir créé une structure officielle pour le Atlantic Outdoor Collective, composé de leaders environnementaux, de professionnels des loisirs et du plein air et de décideurs publics. Ce collectif superviserait les pratiques exemplaires partagées par le conservateur en fonction des intérêts et des besoins particuliers des collectivités et des organismes du secteur du plein air du Canada atlantique (p. ex. parcs, sentiers, municipalités, espaces et espèces conservés, etc.
