NatureTalks: Engagement

Join the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) in Edmonton for a lively discussion about public engagement in conservation. As humans, we don’t like to be rushed into things. In order for us to make meaningful changes about any aspect of our lives, we need to first develop awareness, move towards understanding, make a commitment and then take action.

NCC and a panel of local experts will discuss how communication, education and outreach, volunteering, citizen science and collaboration all move people toward action. Our speakers may even help to identify ways you can get actively involved in conservation science and stewardship efforts in your own backyards!

Cash bar available. Refreshments and light hors-d'oeuvres will be provided before and after the event.
