are residents and organizations connected to Calgary’s 150 communities and Community Associations
of partners, stakeholders, topic experts, case study guests, and facilitators working as an Innovation Lab structure to develop, test and create community focused projects that address the impacts of climate change on Calgary’s communities.
How it works
The partnership is running as an innovation lab over a series of two half Saturdays and three weekday evenings (for a total of about 20 hours). Partners practice ideation, project development, prototyping (feasibility, impact and fault testing) and project resourcing / implementation, through peer mentoring and active facilitation.
Partners are expected to attend all sessions, and publically present their work at Moving Mountains or at a Market Place of Ideas. Partners are encouraged to continue with the lab as case guests, peer mentors, community resource partners or lab members.
What is it?
the Climate Partners are community driven with the bulk of the learning and experiments created and lead through the experiences of the partners and the curated guests. The Partnership is designed to build social and practical relationships to create a vibrant and supportive network of Calgary residents and organizations to build a growing legacy of impactful climate action project that will cumulatively and collectively address the very real and serious impact of climate changes that are coming to Calgary.
When is this happening?
We are currently pilot testing the Climate Partners using an innovation Lab format. We will be open for public registration beginning Sept 15, 2022. Interested folks are invited to Moving Mountains (September 30, - October 2, 2022) at the University of Calgary to meet the partners, learn about their projects, and learning how to join the first round of partnerships. See the 2021 Moving Mountains website for an idea of how this will work.
