This year's Forum theme is - Towards Watershed Planning
The Renfrew County Stewardship Forum is about connecting people and organizations with a strong sense of place and future possibilities. The Forum is needed because tackling our environmental, social and economic challenges requires collaborative action among a diversity of people and organizations with strong convictions and the courage to act on them. To be effective will require adopting innovative partnerships and approaches.
The forum aims to foster intense interaction, networking and information exchange to explore how to inform people about what’s happening to our communities and environment in a way that they can relate to, understand and take action. Now is the time. Together we can shape our future to sustain our collective values and communities.
