The goal of these events is to raise awareness and advance the public dialogue on the role of learning as a foundation for co-creating the next Alberta.

Speakers will open up the dialogue on how we can create a well informed knowledge base to address Alberta’s environmental and political challenges, how the process of gentle action can foster transparency and stability in our institutions and the impact of declining literacy and essential skills on Alberta’s adaptive capacity.
