Briefing Notes

Along with other organizations, Alberta Wilderness Association frequently prepares briefing notes on specific topics and issues of concern to us. These are short (typically no more than a few pages) summaries of the topic, covering highlights including a short history, the current situation, the importance of the topic, AWA’s position and concerns, and what steps need to be taken next.

These briefing notes may be presented to:

● members of the press, for example during a media release;
● elected officials and other decision makers, during a meeting with AWA;
● AWA members and supporters, to keep them abreast of an issue;
● members of the public, where they may be available or handed out at public events;
● and more.

A selection of briefing notes on issues of concern to AWA is available below.

We simply need that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in. For it can be a means of reassuring ourselves of our sanity as creatures, a part of the geography of hope.
