Together Alberta

“It’s been fantastic to see just how much Albertans are working towards a more sustainable future.”

Heather McPherson,
  Executive Director of the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation

Together Alberta is a series of roundtables being hosted across the province, which aim to understand the work being led by Albertans on sustainability and how they are advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through cross sector conversations we will capture the impact and stories of Albertans working towards a more sustainable future. The outcomes of these conversations will be shared online to promote collaboration and innovation to advance the SDGs.

Why participate in the Together Alberta project?

At the completion of the project, we will be sharing an online map, profiling each participating organization and their work on the SDGs. This will be a great tool to showcase Albertan leadership on the Global Goals, and promote new connections within and across different communities. Your organization can be included in this map, thanks to your participation in an upcoming roundtable!

These meetings will also be a great chance to build your community’s understanding of the diversity of work being led, as well as the gaps which must be filled to fully achieve the SDGs. The Global Goals mark a key set of achievements we must strive for in order to create a better world, and building our communal understanding of what is needed to get there will be crucial for our success.

 

The results of the Province-wide roundtables will be mapped online, allowing the public to see the work local organizations are already doing to achieve the SDGs at home and abroad.  Mapping also allows groups to see that they are not alone, and are in fact part of a movement that numbers in the thousands, and provides a tool for groups to connect and collaborate with each other around shared goals and to amplify their impact.
