NGO Sustainability Champions Workshop Series

Mar 22 2016 - 8:00am - Mar 23 2016 - 5:00pm
Jun 22 2016 - 8:00am - 5:00pm

Non-profit organizations create positive social, environmental and economic impacts for their communities. At the same time, they are expected to be role models whose own staff and operations “walk the talk” in terms of sustainability. This can be a challenge given limited time, support and funding

The Natural Step Canada and Edmonton Community Foundation are excited to offer the NGO Sustainability Champions Workshop Series to help NGO’s address this need with two key outcomes:

  • To build the capacity of staff to develop and deliver a sustainability action plan, based on the award-winning approached pioneered by The Natural Step.
  • To develop an action plan to improve sustainability performance.

EcoCity Edmonton: Community Sustainability Grant Learning Session

Feb 10 2016 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Feb 10 2016 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm

From the City of Edmonton website:

We are partnering with Alberta Ecotrust to deliver environmental grants to help support energy literate citizens with energy conserving lifestyles and a strong shift to active and public transportation.

We believe these grants, available to non-profits, community leagues, schools and charities, will engage Edmontonians to work on these challenges and provide them with support to collaborate and to create positive environmental change in their own backyards.

The focus will be on community projects that help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Examples of neighbourhood projects include:

  • Walking school bus
  • Installation of solar panels on a community facility
  • Tool-lending library

You must attend one of the learning sessions to apply for the grants.

“We welcome the five principles unveiled today by the federal government to address deficiencies in the existing review process for fossil fuel projects. These principles demonstrate that Ottawa is committed to improving the ways in which fossil fuel infrastructure is evaluated.
