Sharing Experiences is a biennial one day capacity-building workshop for individuals and community groups interested in creating positive environmental change. The goal of the workshop is to link like-minded people and groups to facilitate the sharing of stories and information so that participants can build skills, network and share ideas about environmental projects in their respective communities. The workshop includes presentations, panel discussions and small breakout sessions delivered and facilitated by knowledgeable and experienced members of the environmental community.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER JAMES RAFFAN

Our Home on Native Land:
In 2017, James Raffan was involved in four epic sesquicentennial
journeys that included paddling the Rideau Canal from Kingston
to Ottawa, a circumnavigation of Canada from Toronto to Victoria
via the Northwest Passage, a ship-based youth expedition from
Resolute Nunavut to Kangerlussuaq, Greenland and a quick trip
to the North Pole from Murmansk, Russia aboard the world’s
most powerful nuclear icebreaker. With wonderful people in
faraway places, he pondered climate change, canoes, youth
engagement, the national anthem, diversity and inclusion,
tolerance, reconciliation and home.
