AEN Climate Caucus Spring Meeting

Apr 6 2019 - 9:00am to 2:00pm

Following Alberta Ecotrust’s annual Environmental Gathering (April 4 and 5 in Calgary), the AEN Climate Caucus will meet on April 6 to continue to galvanize strategic cooperation between our climate-active organizations.This event is for Albertans engaged in climate change activity who would like to strategize with others, including members of AEN's Climate Caucus and anybody interested in participating in the caucus.

The meeting will expand on the February and March calls and will be centred around:

  1. Marketplace of Ideas
    Opportunities to present on current or prospective ideas for climate work in Alberta. Let’s learn from and support each other while seeking intersections between existing and future work. These will be rigorous discussions that will support, enrich and result in meaningful climate goals and strategies.
     
  2. Non-partisan pre-provincial election activity
    Given the prospective scenarios, it's imperative that climate change be on the radar of citizens, political parties and candidates. What is our role and how do we make this happen? Continuing the discussion and actions from the February and March Climate Caucus calls.

Grassy Mountain Coal Project Decision May Sound the Death Knell for Montem and Atrum Coal

Yesterday’s Grassy Mountain Coal Project Joint Review Panel categorical rejection of Benga Mining’s applications for the Grassy Mountain mine may very well sound the death knell for Montem Resources and Atrum Coal. Today, both companies requested that trading in their shares on the Australian Securities Exchange be stopped.

Before Montem’s request was accepted its stock lost 20 percent of its value. Its last trade was at 7 cents a share; Atrum’s last trade was at 4.7 cents a share. Read more about Grassy Mountain Coal Project Decision May Sound the Death Knell for Montem and Atrum Coal

Digital Rally: Say No to Coal

Jun 25 2021 - 12:00pm

Across the country, a movement is growing to protect the Rockies and its headwaters from open-pit coal mining. Eight new coal mining projects have been proposed on the Eastern Slopes – and we need to stop them before they start.

The grassroots opposition to this new coal rush in Alberta is working – on June 17, the proposed Grassy Mountain coal project was rejected thanks to pressure from the hard work of people in Alberta and across the country. However, the work to protect the Rockies is not over – there are still 7 coal projects able to move ahead. Read more about Digital Rally: Say No to Coal
