Stewards in Motion

From the Land Stewardship Centre of Canada website:

Stewards in Motion is more than just a series of events. It is a rally call to connect all stewards at a local level, regardless of focus, affiliation or discipline. It is the philosophy that enables the stewardship community and other stakeholders such as municipal government, ENGOs and industry, to think collectively and then act locally to protect our valuable, common natural assets…

 

Brought to you by ASN, with the support of Miistakis Institute and Environmental Law Centre, these interactive, regional events offer participants the opportunity to actively learn, share, and engage in collaborative dialogue across sectors.

…this year’s theme is transforming collaboration to advance local stewardship efforts.

Events are scheduled for November 6 in Lac La Biche and November 27 in Buffalo Lake. Read more »

Panels Not Pipelines: A Speaking Tour About Solutions

Alberta has faced more than its fair share of environmental and fiscal horror stories. The province's chaotic emphasis on hydrocarbon development has delivered endless pipeline leaks, growing bitumen pollution and unaccountable one-party government. These problems have left many Albertans wondering if we could write a different story. A story that still creates jobs and keeps our economy strong but without the environmental downside.

Luckily those solutions are readily at hand and Alberta is the perfect place to implement them.

This October come listen to Jane Kleeb from Bold Nebraska as she tells the story of not only how her community stopped the KeystoneXL tarsands pipeline from endangering the Oglala aquifer but also how they are also building real energy solutions in the process.

From a solar powered barn, to replanting corn that has been lost for generations Jane tells a story of hope and resistance.  

On the tour other prominent speakers like award winning author and journalist Andrew Nikiforuk, solar energy guru Randall Benson with Gridworks Energy Group, and wind and solar expert David Isaac may also join Jane.

This is a moment not to be missed. Read more »

Mapping What Matters Survey— win a $1000 Capacity Grant

The Alberta Ecotrust Foundation is conducting a comprehensive survey of environmental non-profit groups in Alberta. By completing the survey, your organization will be eligible for a draw to receive a $1000 Mini-grant for Capacity. From the Ecotrust website:

At Alberta Ecotrust, we believe the environmental challenges we all face are too large for any organization to address alone. It is critical that we work together to find solutions to the most pressing issues of our day.


If you are the Executive Director, Board Chair or primary decision-maker for an environmental nonprofit in Alberta we would like to invite you to complete this confidential survey. The collective responses will help us understand the scope, scale and needs of Alberta’s ENGO community in order to optimise how our programs can best support the important environmental work you do as charities and nonprofits. Your responses will also contribute to a collective understanding of this sector and results will be shared with all participants via a summary report. Please add your voice!

The deadline for the survey is August 18 at 5:00pm.

If your organization has not received an invitation to complete the survey, follow the link below to request an invite.
