Alberta 2019: Forces of Change

November 16, 2018 at 7:00pm - November 18, 2018
Engineering Teaching & Learning Complex (ETLC), University of Alberta

Parkland Institute presents its 22nd Annual Fall Conference, Alberta 2019: Forces of Change, featuring opening keynote Lynne Fernandez.

The conference will take a deep dive into our history, economy, and social conflicts to better understand Alberta’s past, present, and future within Canada, North America, and the world.

In 2015, Alberta elected a New Democratic government for the first time. It was a stunning moment in Albertan – and Canadian – history. For some, it was a wrenching experience; for others, a moment of exhilaration, the results of which have continued to reverberate ever since. Four years on, we examine the forces at work that will determine Alberta’s and Canada’s future – forces of change and forces that resist change – and the means by which progress and resistance are themselves changing for 2019 and beyond.
