February 23rd - 25th 2017 (Edmonton)
Alberta Ecotrust is proud to announce our second annual Environmental Gathering: Breaking Through. We are at a unique time in Alberta with new opportunities for meaningful progress on the environment. As we all grapple with important issues like reducing greenhouse gas emissions, protecting watersheds and preserving valuable land and habitat, it is more important than ever to break through barriers and drive change! No one can do it alone.
Building on the success of the first Environmental Gathering in 2016, we invite you to be a part of this exciting and strategic opportunity to connect and collaborate with people from environmental nonprofits, First Nations communities, industry and government. Alberta Ecotrust Foundation’s second annual Environmental Gathering continues the practice of coming together as environmental champions to boldly create and steward our collective vision for tomorrow. Join us to explore the urgency of the issues we face and the energy and action needed to address our most pressing concerns.

Alberta Ecotrust is proud to announce that our first annual Environmental Gathering in Alberta was a smashing success! Alberta’s environmental community is incredibly diverse. From ensuring safe and available water, to preserving and restoring valuable land and habitat, to building a sustainable future, Albertans across the province are continually working to protect the ecosystems that provide all of us with life and prosperity.
Champions for the environment from the public and private sectors gathered to explore new opportunities and to work across sectors. There were more than 200 environment and sustainability professionals in attendance. At this event we were able to connect with peers and like-minded individuals from across the province in meaningful way. The environmental challenges we face in Alberta are complex. We share a sense of urgency. We believe that to amplify our collective impact we need to come together to connect meaningfully, find common ground, share resources, align our objectives and plan wisely. Rather than a “stand alone” conference, this Environmental Gathering was an opportunity to determine how we can work together as a community moving forward.
