Canadian Parks for Tomorrow 2008 - 40th Anniversary Conference
8-13 May 2008
This international conference brings scholars, policy makers and the interested public together to describe, analyze and assess the history, current status and future directions of protected areas, landscapes and heritage resources and their role in our society.
Parks and protected areas play a crucial role in society. In 1968 the newly established University of Calgary hosted an international conference that helped define the role of parks in Canada in light of international experience. Since then Canada has emerged as a world leader in parks and protected areas.
Four decades later, in 2008, we again gather together Canadian and global partners to consider the role of parks and protected areas in our country and internationally in light of 21st century realities.
