MNA Climate Change Workshops

Métis Nation of Alberta (MNA) invites community members to join us for a series of province-wide workshops on climate change. The gathered feedback will aim to inform policy and program development, and ensure that Métis interests and concerns are heard and addressed. 

Attendees to the workshops will be entered into a draw for one (1) prize of an iPad and energy efficiency kit!  The draw will happen by the end of July, once all our workshops are completed. Dinner and snacks will be provided at all workshops.

We hope to see you there!
