Moving Mountains is set up as a choose your own learning. There are 7 themes (science, communications, indigenous knowledge, mental wellness, design thinking, skills / tools, collaboration & peer mentoring) and a variety of approaches for facilitating learning centred on the themes. There are no panel discussions, and there will be no keynote speakers. There will be participatory sessions designed for everyone to be part of the learning experience. Other modes of learning will be through the curated Arts installations, tools workshops, story telling, indigenous land based learning, campus tours, a chill out room, activist speed dating (facilitated networking) , ideation hot house, concept testing, yoga, pitching, eating good food, listening to live music, etc. The schedule will have the themes and sessions (methods & activators) posted to Moving-Mountains.ca so that you can plan your own learning journey. This will be supported by the conference workbook, and by our team of helpers and activators, who will be there with you participating in the entire confluence.


You can select one or all of the program blocks, and at least 2 activity session within each block. You can be as busy or introverted as you want. You can also choose to use the open space areas for reflection, joining in the art installations, networking, and more. Afternoons will each have land based activities or tours. Each block will have one activity with an indigenous elder, and 3 other activities to incorporate the 7 themes. Saturday morning has been set for groups of collaborators to meet as interest centred caucuses to have time to meet on their specific areas of interest. Caucuses will include Métis Climate Leadership, Rural / Farm climate solutions, Alberta Environmental Network, Permaculture and so on. Our program organizers can be consulted by that want to have specific goals facilitated for their group.
