Vision Quest Conference & Trade Show 2017!

The 21st Vision Quest Conference & Trade Show takes place at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg, from May 16-18. We are excited about this year's events, and the inspiring keynote presenters who will be joining us: ADAM BEACH Adam Beach is an Anishinaabe actor, known for many acclaimed film and television projects including Suicide Squad, Law & Order,Windtalkers, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, and more. Born in Ashern, Manitoba, Beach spent his early years growing up on the Lake Manitoba/Dog Creek First Nation. After the tragic deaths of both his mother and father, Adam and his two brothers went to live in Winnipeg with an aunt and uncle. It was at Gordon Bell High School where Beach attended his first drama class, and began performing in local theatre productions. Acting eventually led Adam to a very successful career in entertainment. In response to his dream of helping Aboriginal youth find a better way in life through film, Adam founded the Adam Beach Film Institute in Winnipeg. In early 2012, an initial gift of donation from San Gold Corporation enabled Adam to begin to see the realization of this dream. KYLE NOBESS Kyle Nobess has always dreamt of being an actor, and through perseverance, hard work and self-belief he has been fortunate to work in film and television in various ways. Today he is a recognizable and established Aboriginal actor and screenwriter, YouTube artist, entrepreneur and motivational speaker. Kyle's passion is to share his courage and message with youth around the world, that dreams are possible and anything is achievable when you set your mind to something. Drawing from his own experiences, Kyle shares his journey of recovery from drugs and alcohol and the healing path to getting a second chance at life. Through personal development and finding inner strength, Kyle is proud to say he has experienced true freedom within his body, spirit and mind - that well-being is attainable, and that dreams are indeed possible for each of us. You can meet both of these dynamic presenters, and many more, at the 2017 Vision Quest Conference & Trade Show.

IAIA17 in Montreal

IAIA17: Impact Assessment’s Contribution to the Global Efforts in Addressing Climate Change Le Centre Sheraton Montréal Hôtel Montréal, Canada 4-7 April 2017 Climate change represents a key challenge to the sustainability of global ecosystems and human prosperity in the 21st century.  Climate change goes beyond project impacts, as it affects many diverse global issues:  from water, food, and energy security to impacts on human rights and vulnerable peoples. Global climate change raises important questions of international and intergenerational justice. IA science and practice are strongly challenged by climate change. IA will contribute to ensuring that future development outcomes are not jeopardized by present-day decisions, and to identifying resilient adaptation measures to reduce and manage the adverse effects of climate change. Using our skills to adapt or mitigate the adverse effects of climate change is one of the greatest challenges we face as professionals and citizens. You are invited to join IAIA in Montréal to share information, best practices, success stories, innovations, and lessons learned with delegates from all over the world.
