2018 Environmental Gathering: Create the Future

March 9, 2018 - 12:00am to 3:00am
March 9, 2018 - 7:00am to March 10, 2018 - 7:00am

Alberta Ecotrust is hosting their 3rd Environmental Gathering: Create the Future, March 8-10 at Mount Royal University in Calgary.

The Gathering is a solutions-focused and activity-based event - you can expect less traditional speaking spaces (like panels), and more time spent on idea cultivation, effective collaboration, and re-imagination. Past Gatherings have been both an exciting and strategic opportunity to connect with others with a shared passion for the environment.

Early Bird Registration is open until January 31. Students qualify for a $50 discount. There are also discounted hotel rates available.

Alberta Ecotrust Bursaries

Please note that Alberta Ecotrust is accepting bursary applications until January 26. Extra consideration is given to applications that come from youth, Indigenous individuals, or those require financial assistance. See the FAQ section on the Gathering website for details on how to apply.
