Alberta Climate Leaders

Capacity Building

The Alberta Climate Leaders program helps elected leaders advance low carbon and resilient solutions in their community.  

We deliver a suite of programs to meet your needs: 

  • Practical tools 
  • Current research 
  • Peer networking 
  • Coaching and mentorships 

Each resource will help you learn, plan and engage in climate action.  Our resources focus on the integration of adaptation and mitigation to both minimize contradictory efforts and maximize the impact and co-benefits that can be received from a strategic, integrated approach. 

Alberta Municipal Climate Leadership Council

Elected officials are invited to join the Alberta Municipal Climate Leadership Council (AMCLC), a network of peers who share an interest and commitment to climate action at the local level. The current cohort of the AMCLC has been running since September 2022.
