Public Participation in Environmental Decision-Making in Alberta – Part III (Webinar)
Is someone proposing an industrial or other significant project in your community? How are environmental impact assessments conducted in Alberta? How can you get involved in the environmental impact assessment process?
The short answer is that Alberta Environment regulates environmental aspects of many activities under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act. Some of these are subject to mandatory environmental impact assessments and there are a variety of ways for the public to participate.
If that answer leaves you wondering how it all works and how you can be involved, join Laura Bowman, Staff Counsel of the Environmental Law Centre, to learn more about EIAs and how you can have a say in the environmental impact assessment process.
When: Thursday February 18th, 2010
This is a free event and is open to the public.
This is the third in a four-part, weekly webinar series in which ELC Staff Counsel members will present the contents of A Guide to Public Participation in Environmental Decision-Making in Alberta. No familiarity with the guide is required, but you can click here to read or download it.
The invitation for the final session of this series will be sent separately, but in case you want to save the date, it is:
Thursday February 25 – Part IV: Going to Court: Judicial Review
Thank you for your attention and we hope you’ll join us on the 18th!
