Our Communities face unique challenges defined by our demographics, resource base, and a changing economy and climate in Alberta. Leveraging a diversity of partnerships, innovative solutions, and inspiriting courage to address these challenges is the pathway forward.

It helps to have a variety of perspectives addressing the same problem: peer-based learning and systems thinking are critical to identifying and walking the path to sustainable solutions. 

"What is our vision for the future of rural communities in Alberta given the realities of a changing climate and the need to diversify our economy and resource base?"

What people say about Pathways...

  • Chris Turner, Author & Change Agent

    Pathways 2 Sustainability in Red Deer was one of the best organized and rewarding conferences I've had the opportunity to speak at. Lisa makes everyone involved feel like they're part of a fantastic team doing vital work, and the connections formed at P2S were quick to happen and long-lasting thanks to her skilled, inclusive leadership
