Fort St. John’s Mayor and City Manager will be in Edmonton starting Sunday for the ICLEI Conference.
The ICLEI is the largest global association of local governments working on sustainability. Over 500 participants are expected to join the conversation, hosted in Edmonton, on advancing sustainability in cities and towns.
Since 1990, ICLEI has been leading the movement of local sustainability with global campaigns on climate, water, procurement, biodiversity and more.
At the event, keynote speakers such as Matthis Wackernagel, the co-creator of the concept of the “Ecological Footprint” and Alex Wong from the World Economic Forum will provide insights into future scenarios that cities will face. Delegates will also connect with each other in smaller sessions aimed at strengthening the connection with the global ICLEI Network and share local expertise.
