Canvassing for Change

Feb 24 2019 - 9:30am to 5:00pm

Campaigns are won on the ground – at the doorstep and on the phone. Paid ads and social media posts can be part of an effective election campaign, and no one ever won a contested campaign without talking directly to voters.

Canvassing for Change applies principles of community organizing to build large volunteer canvassing teams. Building off of best practices from the last 10 years of US Democrat campaigns, and field-tested and refined by progressives in Canada, Canvassing for Change teaches the practical and hands on skills needed to win.

AEN Fall Assembly Featured Speaker: Dr. Duane Bratt

AEN is pleased to welcome Dr. Duane Bratt to the Fall Assembly as the featured speaker for Friday afternoon's discussion of the Political Climate in Alberta and potential scenarios for ENGOs. Dr. Bratt is a regular commentator in the media on Alberta political affairs. His latest opinion piece on CBC Calgary speaks about UCP leader Jason Kenney's promises to "fight back" against ENGOs and other criticis of Alberta's energy sector.

2018 AEN Fall Assembly

Nov 2 2018 - 12:00am to Nov 3 2018 - 12:00am

AEN member groups work on a broad range of inter-connected issues covering a wide geographic area. The urgency of our environmental objectives requires that we work together strategically and effectively. Meeting face-to-face is very important to building community, taking action, and making a collective impact.

AEN's Fall Assembly brings together environmental advocates from across the province, and provides opportunities for groups to share knowledge, strategize and plan collective action. This year's program includes sessions on truth and reconciliation in environmental work, youth engagement, digital campaigning, and Alberta's political climate.

AEN Members are eligible for support for travel and accommodation expenses while attending the Assembly.
