The heart of Alberta Ecotrust’s work is supporting the people and projects that effectively address Alberta’s most pressing environmental issues. We accomplish this primarily by making grants to enable Alberta environmental non-governmental organizations to more effectively deliver programs, projects, and results that advance their environmental missions within our issue priorities.

Alberta Ecotrust presently has three grant streams: Community Grants, Major Projects, and Collective Action Grants. For the year 2015 we will be accepting applications for Community Grants and Major Projects only. Applications for Community Grants will accepted in the spring with a deadline of May 4th.

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 »
