About the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation

Who We Are

A network of organizations and individuals, located in Alberta, working locally and globally to advance sustainable development and global citizenship. Part of this network includes ACGC members, comprised of civil society organizations and individuals.

Mission

Mobilize Albertans to become global citizens engaged in sustainable development. We do this by building the capacity of network organizations, representing members’ interests with government and others, and increasing the awareness, knowledge, and connections of Albertans in global issues and sustainable development.

Working Together

ACGC is part of the Inter-Council Network (ICN), a coalition of the eight Provincial and Regional Councils for International Cooperation. The independent Councils are committed to global sustainable development, social justice and social change. They are rooted in communities across Canada and represent nearly 350 diverse civil society organizations (CSOs) from across Canada. Council membership varies from locally based cultural community civil society organizations to highly recognizable international organizations.
