NGO Sustainability Champions Workshop Series

Mar 22 2016 - 2:00pm to Mar 23 2016 - 11:00pm
Jun 22 2016 - 2:00pm to 11:00pm

Non-profit organizations create positive social, environmental and economic impacts for their communities. At the same time, they are expected to be role models whose own staff and operations “walk the talk” in terms of sustainability. This can be a challenge given limited time, support and funding

The Natural Step Canada and Edmonton Community Foundation are excited to offer the NGO Sustainability Champions Workshop Series to help NGO’s address this need with two key outcomes:

  • To build the capacity of staff to develop and deliver a sustainability action plan, based on the award-winning approached pioneered by The Natural Step.
  • To develop an action plan to improve sustainability performance.

Edmonton Resilience Festival

From the Edmonton Resilience Festival website:

Mission Statement:

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.
