Collaboration for Change

March 14-17, 2018
Coast Canmore Hotel and Conference Centre
Canmore, Alberta, Canada

Inspired by the incredible diversity of parks, landscapes and open spaces in this country, ARPA created the Parks Forum to gather key partners, educators, students, thinkers, and decision makers to develop ideas and forge connections.  

The theme for the 2018 Parks Forum is “Collaboration for Change.” Success within parks will be achieved in large part through our ability to collaborate with a range of existing and new partners in areas of shared objectives and alignment. The Parks Forum offers a significant opportunity for collaboration across diverse sectors and cultures. The Forum is also an opportunity to reflect on and evaluate existing initiatives, while also generating new ideas and approaches to parks planning, management, and use.

Call for Presentations

The 2018 Parks Forum Advisory Committee is currently inviting submissions from individuals and organizations interested in presenting at the Forum.

The Parks Forum series was inspired by the incredible diversity of parks, landscapes and open spaces in this country. As a result, the Forum has been attended by a broad cross section of participants from Alberta’s three major levels of government in park provision (municipal, provincial and national) as well as a variety of key partners, educators and students. 

If you have a compelling story, experience, idea or research to present, please submit a proposal by filling in this online form.

The deadline for Session Presentation submissions is 12:00 PM MST on Friday, November 3rd.
