This Week's Highlights

ACCELERATE: Collaborating for Sustainability, June 10 – 11, 2013, Guelph, ON

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

Registration for the ACCELERATE: Collaborating for Sustainability conference is now open.

The Natural Step Canada is convening this conference because we keep hearing increasing calls for greater collaboration to solve complex sustainability challenges. But collaboration is not easy. Many of us are used to addressing problems and issues at an organizational scale and do not have experience engaging with diverse groups and being effective contributors to multi-stakeholder change processes.

We are not the only group who recognizes this challenge. Most of the organizations we work with mention that they can only go so far on their sustainability journeys before they run up against barriers – policy, market, financial, and so on – that require them to work with organizations they are not used to working with.

The ACCELERATE: Collaborating for Sustainability conference is designed so that participants will have the chance to learn about collaboration from experts and practitioners but also, importantly, to experience collaboration. Using many of the dialogue education processes that have become mainstays of The Natural Step’s courses, our intention is to create an environment where we will all learn from one another. There will even be a portion of the agenda that will be created by the participants, giving you an opportunity to share your own experiences and explore with others the topics that matter most to you, possibly even inviting collaborators to join you in your initiatives.
