Revisioning the 2020 Environmental Gathering

If we have learned anything in the past months of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is the value of community. Alberta Ecotrust understands the importance of convening Alberta’s environmental community; gathering environmental champions across boundaries to learn together, share success and strengthen networks. Our Annual Environmental Gathering has been a vital community builder over the past 5 years and we love it as much as you do!

This year, gathering almost 300 people over two days in one place just isn’t the best way to bring the community together. As we chart an uncertain path, we know canceling the Annual Environmental Gathering scheduled for Oct. 1 & 2, 2020 in Edmonton is the right decision, even though it’s disappointing.

There are so many ways we can bring the spirit of the Environmental Gathering to our community throughout 2020 and achieve the goals of the event. We are looking at how to pivot; responding creatively to the needs of the community and the opportunities we have to innovate and engage online and, when the time comes, in-person in smaller groups. Our revised Environmental Gathering programming will be informed by what we hear from our friends and colleagues, including via our Navigating the Future sector survey, and input from our Environmental Gathering Ambassador Committee.

Please follow our blog, our social media channels, sign-up for our newsletter and watch for our revised Environmental Gathering programming announcements through the year.
