Local conservation authorities and environmental groups invite the community to participate in the seventh biennial Sharing Experiences workshop. This one-day event takes place on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at the Puslinch Community Centre. It brings together like-minded people from across the region to share ideas and experiences.

Sharing Experiences welcomes individuals and community groups interested in creating positive environmental change. This year’s workshop focuses on climate change and youth engagement. It’s an opportunity for participants to build skills, network and share ideas about environmental projects in their own community.

This year’s workshop features keynote speaker Kevin Hamilton, vice-president for Communications, Student Conservation Association (SCA). His keynote address will showcase how forging connections between youth and the great outdoors ensures the next generation will value, experience and conserve nature.

The workshop covers topics relevant to the current local environmental issues and concerns. Sharing Experiences includes presentations, panel discussions and small breakout sessions with knowledgeable and experienced members of the environmental community.

This event is hosted in partnership with Conservation Halton, Credit Valley Conservation, Friends of Mill Creek, Grand River Conservation Authority, Halton Environmental Network, Hamilton Conservation Authority and the Iroquoia Bruce Trail Club. Sponsors of the event include Conservation Halton Foundation and Little Mushroom Catering.

Since 2009, more than 400 participants, representing over 160 different community-based environmental groups from the Greater Golden Horseshoe Area have attended this workshop.
