EFC Speaker Series – Organizing for Nature

15 March 2022 / Registration Closed

Building ‘people power’ for nature is no easy task, yet it is often a major prerequisite for successfully advancing the policies and regulations needed to conserve the threatened ecosystems upon which we and other species depend. Please join us for this roundtable discussion among four environmental leaders in Canada, whose organizations are finding innovative ways to engage and mobilize people inside and outside of the ‘enviro bubble’ to advocate for nature protection and conservation.

How are they doing it? What challenges are they currently grappling with? What lessons learned can others benefit from?


Mike Balkwill, Campaign Director, Wellington Water Watchers
Tim Gray, Executive Director, Environmental Defence
James Littley, Operations and Grants Manager, Okanagan Basin Water Board
Graham Saul, Executive Director, Nature Canada
