The 2011 Pathways to Sustainability Conference

February 23, 2011 - 4:00pm to February 25, 2011 - 12:00pm


Creating a sustainable society is the greatest opportunity and the greatest challenge of our era. Since 2009, the Pathways 2 Sustainability Conference (P2S) has helped form the relationships and capacity for planning and participating in sustainable communities.

Building on P2S 2009’s sustainable communiites theme, P2S is moving forward from planning to community-based action. We are featuring over 40 Showcase Exhibitors, 12 Panelists, and 5 Keynotes on topics such as Community Supported Agriculture, Feed In Tarrifs, Renewable Energy, Community Finance, Food Security, and Sustainable & Resilient Community Planning.

Pathways 2011 is a networking opportunity for over 250 industry innovators, community & institutional leaders, and the investment community to engage in moving communities in Alberta towards resliency.

Organized by ReThink Red Deer volunteers with the support of the Red Deer College Green Campus Initiative, The City of Red Deer, Growing Food Security in Alberta, Sustainability Resources Ltd., The Alberta Rural Development Network, The Red Deer & District Community Foundation, The Red Deer River Naturalists, The Alberta Real Estate Foundation, The Alberta Centre for Sustainable Rural Communities, and the Canadian Centre for Community Renewal (and many more!), Pathways 2011 will encompass a dialogue about the components of resilient communities: FOOD, FUEL, and FINANCE!
