Sustainable Protocol & Diplomacy: cultivating our commitments to the land, ourselves and each other

Protocole et diplomatie durables : cultivons nos engagements envers la terre, nous-mêmes et les autres

Montreal, QC, noted as one of the most sustainable cities in the world, lends itself naturally to hosting PDI-POA’s annual forum under the theme, “Sustainable Protocol & Diplomacy: cultivating our commitments to the land, ourselves and each other”. As guests on the unceded territory of the Kanien’keha:ka (Mohawk) Nation, Forum attendees will have an opportunity to reflect on the importance of our relationship with First Peoples, the land, ourselves and each other. With an educational program designed around foundational and professional development, content for newcomers to the field and seasoned practitioners, sessions will highlight the evolving nature of our work, the diversity of our relationships, and support colleagues in developing professional and personal skills.
