The Adaptation Resilience Training (ART) program is an Alberta-focused set of introductory courses that will be delivered online from September 7 to 16, 2021 at no cost. This free training will explore how Alberta’s climate is changing, how it is impacting your work as a professional in the sector, and how you can understand and manage climate risks in an uncertain future.
