Description

Do you want to be part of one of the largest gatherings of changemakers in Canada? Join us at The Gathering 2018, and connect with over 300 leaders from non-profits, environmental groups, government, think tanks, sustainability groups, research and the private sector! This is the 3rd annual Gathering, with this year's theme on taking action and scaling up environmental solutions, held here in Calgary! Tickets are priced at $270, but as a volunteer for the 2.5 days from March 8th Thursday evening, March 9th Friday and March 10th Saturday all day, you'll work closely with the Ecotrust team, with inside access to the event, free.

We're looking for ~20 volunteers to help with simple logistics like registering delegates, timekeeping, and, more interactively, workshop facilitation.

Questions? Sign up now for this Volunteer Orientation session to meet on-campus and chat directly with Amy Spark, Environmental Program Coordinator at Alberta Ecotrust Foundation and to register your interest! (Signing up to the event does not obligate you to sign up as a volunteer - this is a Q&A session for you to find out more!)

3RD ANNUAL ENVIRONMENTAL GATHERING

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

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 on the environment, and breaking through barriers that hold us back. This year, there will be less traditional speaking spaces (such as panels), and more time spent on idea cultivation, effective collaboration, and re-imagination.

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-focused and activity-based Gathering.
