Who: We welcome all individuals, organizations and businesses with an interest in advancing sustainability in Calgary.
Why: Calgary is at a defining moment in its history. The choices we make today will shape our city and region for decades. Those choices can increasingly promote and accelerate sustainability, or they can perpetuate business as usual – and continued missed opportunities for innovation and lack of resilience.
What: The breakfast and lunch events are intended to:
Bring people together, including unlikely allies
Provide a forum for learning and networking
Profile organizations engaged in sustainability and local initiatives
Explore key questions on topics central to sustainability in Calgary
Facilitate introductions and collaborations that could lead to innovative action
Where: Different venues around Calgary.
When: Breakfasts take place on the last Friday of each month (7:30-9:00 am) and lunches on the second Friday every other month (11:30 am-1:00 pm).
How: This networking breakfast series is organized by Stephanie Jackman, founder & president of REAP Business Association, and Carolyn Bowen, manager of The City of Calgary's Office of Sustainability. Organizational support for the lunch events is provided by Laryssa Warne, marketing coordinator for Bullfrog Power.
