Oil & Community Speaker Series: The Impacts of the Boom on Fort McMurray

Join the University of Alberta's Community Service-Learning Program and the Parkland Institute for a five-week speaker series that explores the impacts of the oil industry on Albertan communities. This series of talks is part of an interdisciplinary course at the University of Alberta that explores these themes by combining course work with community-facing projects in Fort McMurray. As such, the talks will pay particular attention to the impacts of the tarsands projects in northern Alberta on community sustainability. This free lecture series is open to the public.
