From May 20th to May 22nd, 2009, Cochrane is hosting over 35 municipalities from all corners of the province for a lively, interactive conference that promises hands-on experience with municipal sustainability planning. Located at the now famous Cochrane RancheHouse Conference Center, this exciting event will be rich with western heritage, local food, and creative cultural entertainment!
Anchored in the Alberta Urban Municipal Associations acclaimed Municipal Sustainability Planning process, this conference has been designed to help delegates build the understanding, acquire the tools, and develop the relationships our communities need to create successful pathways to sustainability.
Featuring keynote speakers Preston Manning, Mark Anielski, and Don Hill, we will also have planning workshops in each of the five dimensions of sustainability; social, economic, environmental, cultural and governance.
On the ground sustainability planning will be highlighted through community presentations from Mayor Linda Bruce from the City of Airdrie, Mayor Truper McBride of the Town of Cochrane, Nina Gales from the Town of Olds, Gary Buxton from the Town of Canmore, and Meredith Walker from Strathcona County.
