Environmental groups that are focused on water issues in Alberta have a central role in shaping community action and policy regarding this critical resource. The Alberta Water Learning Network 2009-2010 brings together water leaders for a series of retreats that build understanding between organizations and individuals, strengthen management capacity among these leading organizations and explore ways of working together.
This project is unique because the sessions offered are engaging and provide practical skills building activities and an opportunity for participants to reflect and share openly their goals, challenges and aspirations. The Learning Network is much more than a workshop or conference – it’s an opportunity to learn with peers, reflect on the work in a broader context and recharge for the work ahead.
