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 ideas and experiences 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.
Following the success of the Sharing Experiences Workshop since its inception in 2009, local Conservation Authorities and environmental organizations are partnering to host the 6th biennial Sharing Experiences Workshop.
The workshop will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2018, at the Puslinch Community Centre at 23 Brock Road South, Puslinch, ON, N0B 2J0 and will include presentations and small breakout sessions from knowledgeable and experienced members of the environmental community. Agenda and Registration Details for the 2018 Sharing Experiences Workshop can be found in the links to the right.
The Sharing Experiences Workshop Organizing Committee recognizes the hard work and dedication that members of the community put into environmental projects each year. As in past years, the agenda is designed by those planning to attend the workshop and therefore relevant to current local issues and activities. Fundraising, engaging youth, community partnerships, invasive species management and multicultural outreach are just a few examples of topics covered. Ensuring that an innovative and varied set of topics are selected for each workshop is a priority.
Since 2009, more than 300 participants, representing more than140 different community-based environmental groups from the Greater Golden Horseshoe area, have attended this workshop. This is an opportunity for everyone to share their stories, to learn from each other and to establish relationships with like-minded people. Please refer to the programs from our past workshops to learn more.
