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.
