The Edmonton Resilience Festival aims to strengthen community resilience through skill-sharing workshops and other events, inspiring participants to help create a sustainable, creative and promising future. The festival will also help to restore a sense of community that is often lost in cities experiencing rapid development and population growth. By bringing together diverse participants and creating opportunities for learning, sharing and connecting, we hope to expand our horizons, our skill sets and our community networks.
What can we expect?
The inaugural Edmonton Resilience Festival will run February 7 and 8, 2015, at the beautiful Boyle Street Plaza in downtown Edmonton. We have a mix of hands-on practical workshops, guidedConversation Cafés, art and social events, and a fair showcasing the work of community organizations called the Community Connections Fair.
Grow your leadership skills and confidence through this seven week series
Leading a collaboration, coalition or network is very different from leading a single organization or team. With generous support from Alliance Pipeline, Alberta Ecotrust is partnering with the Institute for Conservation Leadership to offer a seven week course to help nonprofits meet the challenges of cooperative work.
The Leading Collaborations and Networks course will enhance your effectiveness as a leader with new skills, self-awareness, and perspective on what it takes to successfully lead collaborative initiatives.

But keeping these natural areas clean, safe and sustainable is a big job, which is one of the reasons the City of Edmonton’s Office of Biodiversity created the Master Naturalist Program. The program teaches interested Edmontonians more about the ecology of our city and how they can help preserve and steward natural areas. Read more »
