Ecological Grief

Nov 22 2018 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm
Ecological Grief Banner.

Grieving the loss or change of a cherished natural space has not always been recognized as a true form of grieving. With wildfires and summers filled with smoke, devastating flooding, subtle changes in the seasons, and the recent IPCC report, ecological grief is now starting to become recognized as a legitimate form of mourning and anxiety. But like all forms of grief, ecological grief is personal, unique, and doesn't often follow a logical pattern. Join us for a discussion around the ways we may grieve a landscape similarly (and differently) to other forms of loss. Read more about Ecological Grief

AWA’s Wilderness and Wildlife Trust Lecture and Awards

AWA’s Annual Wilderness and Wildlife Lecture is an opportunity to present the ideas of researchers in a field related to conservation of wilderness that will inspire and challenge AWA to seek new directions and ways to increase its effectiveness. AWA is proud to present these lectures in pursuit of its mission “Defending Wild Alberta through Awareness and Action.”  Martha Kostuch was an expert in consensus-based decision making her work helped join groups that traditionally might not have worked together. She sought ways to make the system work so we could move forward. AWA has honoured her legacy and her memory by naming our annual lecture the Martha Kostuch Annual Wilderness and Wildlife Lecture.
