Strategy Sessions

This is the Carolinian Zone – unique, wild and home to one quarter of Canadians. Join us in collaborating for a Big Picture 5-year strategy to grow healthy habitat for a green future for wildlife and people.

  • How green is your future? What is your vision of a sustainable future? How does climate change fit?
  • The Big Picture is greater than the sum of our actions. How do we know we are moving in the right direction, together?
  • Measure what matters. How do you measure success?
  • Great things are happening. How are you reversing habitat loss? How is local nature helping you get climate-smart? Who are your green people?
  • The Big Picture belongs to everyone. How would you like to be connected to the Big Picture?
