ABOUT THE PRESENTERS

This event is being run by the Bow Valley Climate Action Society and the Biosphere Institute of the Bow Valley, with support from the Canmore Museum.

Bow Valley Climate Actionis a group of citizens who are deeply concerned about climate change. We live, work, or just spend time in the Bow Valley. We are a volunteer organization, and always welcome new members!  We are a registered non-profit society. They meet monthly to share ideas, plan upcoming events and activities, and discuss progress.  They have a number of working groups that focus on the topics of buildings, transportation and advocacy.  These working groups generally meet independently of the larger group to advance work on their topic area, and come to regular monthly meetings to report progress, discuss ideas, and celebrate achievements.

Biosphere Institute of the Bow Valley

The Biosphere Institute of the Bow Valley empowers community leadership on environmental challenges. They do so by providing high-quality environmental education programs to both children and adults, and by actively seeking community members’ participation, guidance, and in-depth collaboration in planning and executing conservation programs. They also lead research to understand whether our efforts meaningfully change public knowledge, attitudes, and actions about conservation and nature.

The Canmore Museum

Celebrating our community includes understanding the important role that our landscapes and local environment play in the visitors we see, the adventures we embark on, and the stories we tell. For this reason, we at the Canmore Museum recognize the importance of building an equitable, nature-positive, carbon-neutral future. Over the first half of 2022, the Canmore Museum will be hosting the Nature + Climate + Community Series—co-created in partnership with community organizations, knowledge holders, and storytellers in the Bow Valley—to explore the various dimensions of how nature, climate, and community interact, and how we can bolster a sustainable future in Canmore.

This event series has been made possible thanks to funding from the Banff Canmore Community Foundation, the Town of Banff, the Town of Canmore, and Natural Resources Canada.
