The Boreal Learning Network is a new opportunity that brings together leaders in First Nations communities and environmental nonprofits that are focused on the future of the Boreal forest. With an exchange of culture, engaging activities, outdoor excursions, presentations and open discussion, participants will learn from experts, strengthen their network of contacts and share ideas about the Boreal forest with 24 participants from Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario.
The Boreal Learning Network is centered on three workshop retreat sessions, each chosen for their ability to highlight the natural beauty of the region and offer professional meeting facilities in a comfortable and enjoyable experience. With each session, participants will go deeper into Boreal forest issues and build collective wisdom about challenges and opportunities.
