Applications open for Fall Climate Leadership Program

From the Regeneration Learning Society:

We are excited to announce that we are accepting applications for year the Fall Climate Leadership Program (the CLP). Applications are open until noon, October 14, 2019. The application form and information package are available for download at:

Once again we'll be working with a group of 20+ Albertans to develop their climate leadership capacity within organizations and communities that are not typically focused on taking climate action. Participants will be 25 or older, with 3 or more years on a leadership path in their organizations / communities. Through the CLP they will develop the capacity, knowledge, skill and peer support to lead climate action within their workplaces and organizations. Participants will collaborate with their peers and be supported by Albertan experts from their individual sectors in developing a personal long term action plan to bring climate justice into their organization. Participants will leave the program with an accountability partner, and support from the CLP, becoming part of the growing network of over 120 CLP grads and supporters who are actively working to expand the areas of effective climate leadership in Alberta.

 We are strongly committed to supporting the leadership growth of as diverse a group of Albertan change makers as possible. In particular we’re seeking Albertans who identify as members of equity seeking communities, that include low income, queer, indigenous, newcomers, disabled, people of colour, faith groups, amongst many others. Our participants typically come from organizations that operate in sectors such as education, health care, business, First Nations, Metis and grassroots communities, government, finance, labour, energy, cooperatives, rural areas, not-for-profits, newcomers, and so on. 

 The CLP will run over 4 weekend retreats, between late October 2019 and early February 2020. The first two retreats are for 3 nights in Kananaskis Country. The final two weekend retreats are in Edmonton.  Program registration fees and participation supports are available to meet all participant's individual situations. You can learn more about the CLP by checking out the CLP FAQ.

 Best to you for the fall! I hope that you can join us in protecting Alberta from the threats of climate change.
