Message from our Executive Director, Chad Park

What a busy time at TNS! Nothing has me more excited than the upcoming launch of The Energy Futures Lab. This month the Energy Futures Lab finally launches with a kick-off meeting in Banff. 40 Fellows from across Alberta are primed and ready to begin innovating towards the energy system of the future.

But that is not all we have been up to recently. Our Associates ran Sustainability Level 1 and 2 courses in Vancouver and Moncton, introducing aspiring and practicing sustainability professionals to the Framework for Strategic Sustainability. The IMPACT! Sustainability Champions hosted courses in London and Saskatchewan and at this point, hundreds of youth across Canada have participated in IMPACT! As well, earlier this month, we partnered with 4 leading sustainability organizations to present the Green Economy Ontario conference.
