Do You Have Knowledge or Expereince to Share? Become a Presenter!

ARDN is looking for presenters for the Creating Rural Connections 2014 Event Series: Municipal Sustainability on May 26 in Edmonton.

Deadline for submissions: March 7 at 12pm.

We believe that exploring and addressing challenges facing municipal sustainability in rural Alberta is an important step to developing rural Alberta communities and enhancing their quality of life. CRC 2014: Municipal Sustainability will look at economic, social, cultural, environmental, and governance issues and the inter-relationships between them. Within those areas, we will explore the challenges and contributions of policies and planning, social equity and diversity, and access to services and resources to the sustainability of Alberta municipalities. Presenters and participants will investigate those impacts and work together to explore and plan for innovative solutions.

Rather than a just knowledge-sharing event, the CRC 2014 Event Series will set the agenda for rural development in the area of municipal sustainability. It will be interactive and engaging while highlighting community- institution collaborations and partnership, featuring local talent, knowledge, and expertise, and demonstrating the ways post-secondary involvement can help rural communities address their local challenges.

CRC 2014: Municipal Sustainability will include up to 150 individuals who are invested in municipal sustainability. They will represent, non-governmental organizations, post-secondary students, faculty, and staff, and municipal, provincial, and federal governments.
