The mission of AWA is to defend Wild Alberta through awareness and action.

Awareness means that we act as a voice for Alberta's wilderness areas and for the species that live there. We teach people about what is happening in Alberta's wild places. We lead hikes into these areas and we show people so they can see with their own eyes what beautiful places they are and what could be lost if we are not careful.

Action means that we pay attention to what is happening in the wilderness. If we see activity that could damage an area or harm the plants and and animals that live there, we alert the government and try to get that activity changed. We work with the people who live and work in the wilderness so those areas will stay natural for everyone to enjoy.

Kids Go Global - Explore, Act, Inspire.

Kids Go Global is a place for Elementary, Junior and Senior High schools to explore Global Issues and then work alone or with NGOs to take action locally and internationally. It also supports students acting out the issues using theatre and provides opportunities to share student work and projects. It is a partnership between schools, NGOs and Trickster Theatre.
