Climate Leadership Program
Open to Alberta residents
25 and older
Climate change is the overarching crisis of our time, providing both challenges and opportunities for us to tackle. The Climate Leadership Program (CLP) will build the capacity of participants to take leadership and initiate climate action in their personal lives and organizations in Alberta.
We are looking for 20 people who are on leadership pathways in organizations that do not necessarily have climate change as their core focus. For example, past program participants have had continuing roles in: education, health care, the private sector, Indigenous communities, government, the labour movement, the energy sector, cooperatives, not-for-profits that focus on newcomers, and so on. The retreat based program will run from October 2019 to February, 2020, and will be followed by a related conference in March 2020.
The CLP is for people who have been active in their organization/sector for at least two years and who intend to continue to be involved there over the next 3-5 years. We strongly support the participation of people who identify as members of equity seeking communities, that include low income, queer, indigenous, newcomer disabled, people of colour, faith groups and many others. The first Kananaskis week will incorporate land based learning weekend and has been designed to be accessible to the mobility and comfort needs of all participants. Please mention any concerns about the land based learning, or any other parts of the program
The Climate Leadership Program is a space where leaders from diverse communities across Alberta come together to learn about how they can work for climate action in their own professional lives, networks, and spheres of influence. It's not about doing everything, it's about figuring out where you fit, and what you can contribute to work for a more sustainable society. ~ Krystal CLP3
