Presentation

Planning for a Better Future Using Alberta Tomorrow

Managing Alberta’s multiple landuses in a sustainable way, balancing the social, economic and environmental goals of all Albertans, is no easy task. Without an understanding of the cumulative effects and interconnectedness of our landuses, it is difficult to create plans that ensure a sustainable future. To create a plan, we must first have an understanding our impacts, and the create goals for the future. We can then begin to create the plan that will get us there. The Alberta Tomorrow Cumulative Landuse Simulator helps you do just that. You will see how this visual tool can help set the foundation for creating sustainable landuse plans for your local area.
