  • Workshop: Navigating City Hall

    Join on us on June 3rd at 7 pm to get the insider's scoop on projects benefiting climate in Calgary. 

    You may have heard us say that municipalities hold the keys to climate action. As citizens of Calgary, we have the right and responsibility to work with City Council to ensure that our local representatives take climate change seriously. We want them to establish meaningful, measurable targets, put enough people to work on it, and provide enough money to make it happen.

    How do we go about doing that? This workshop will show you. Our guests will add a climate lens to work being done at city hall and leave you with a new awareness for where to put your energy. The workshop will cover:

    • The structure of city hall,
    • Projects currently underway where you can make a difference, and
    • How to best go about influencing for climate success in Calgary

  • A Climate of Change - Episode 7

    Join us for our new weekly speaker series about what comes next as it relates to our country, the economic system and the climate crisis once the coronavirus has come and gone. Each week, Canadian thought leaders will answer three questions:

    1. What are your top three 'teachable moments' from this time?
    2. Big picture: What can we expect of a post-COVID-19 world?
    3. What does Alberta look like on the other side of this and what would be optimal?

    There will be time for Q&A. 

    We go live at 7:05 so you can continue showing your support for medical and front-line workers.

    Our seventh speaker will be Markham Hislop. Markham is a senior energy journalist based in Western Canada who reports and writes about a wide variety of energy issues in the United States and Canada. He is the publisher of Energi Media, which analyzes the "energy transition," especially the competition between oil/natural gas and emerging clean energy technologies. His book, The New Alberta Advantage: Technology, Policy and the Future of Oil Sands, examines how visionary oil sands executives like Suncor CEO Steve Williams are preparing their companies – which produce two-thirds of Alberta’s oil – for the onrushing low-carbon future. 

    We’ll be broadcasting to you via Facebook Live where you can participate in the night’s conversation by asking the questions you think need answering via the live-feed. Or, you can sign up for a Zoom link by giving us your email below.
