How to start a conversation Albertans care about.

Building on the success of last year’s Talking Climate events, George Marshall returns to Calgary to unpack the insights and perspectives of the Alberta Narratives Project – a year-long community initiative that engaged more than 500 Albertans and uncovers new ways of talking about climate and energy in our province.

Having climate-energy conversations in Alberta: what works and what doesn’t…

Sep 28 2018 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Few issues facing Canada are as divided – and divisive – as climate change and energy.

In this interactive presentation, George Marshall will unpack the insights and perspectives of the Alberta Narratives Project – a year-long initiative involving nearly 500 Albertans to uncover new ways of talking about climate and energy in our province that are built on common ground and respect for different ways of seeing the world.
