Event Description

The Escarpment Corridor Alliance presents the ECA Summit Evening, an extraordinary event filled with inspiration, collaboration, and excitement. Join us as we welcome Canadian photographer, filmmaker, and environmentalist Edward Burtynsky, who will deliver a captivating Keynote presentation. Burtynsky, a long-time member of the Southern Georgian Bay community, will take us on a global journey of his work and environmental beliefs. Ultimately, he will remind us of what a special place we live in and our collective responsibility to take good care of it.

Following the Keynote address, Burtynsky will be joined by three exceptional panelists for a professionally moderated discussion exploring the key issues and threats that impact the escarpment and the world beyond. We will delve into crucial topics such as land conservation, the biodiversity crisis, and how to create a sustainable conservation economy. You will gain insights into the First Nations perspective and explore models, solutions, and an inspiring path forward. We will finish the evening with a Summit Reception where you can share your views, engage in discussion and enjoy some food and drink with Edward Burtynsky, ECA Directors and other event participants.

In addition, the evening will also feature an exhilarating auction – live and on-line, providing an exclusive opportunity to acquire unique items and experiences while supporting the conservation efforts of the Escarpment Corridor Alliance.

Your ticket price includes one beverage ticket and light food at the reception allowing you to enjoy refreshments while immersing yourself in this exceptional evening of insight and collaboration.
