Canadian Online Events (CoE) | Bio-Diversity Initiatives: Canadian Sea Turtle Network

Power Skills



Triple Bottom line principle - Planet, People & Profit has gained paramount importance now more than ever - thanks to pandemic!

Projects in the next millennium will soon start weaving in Sustainability KPIs as part of Success Measures.

Sustainability has a myriad of perspectives depending on the business verticals we are in.

Kathleen Martin, Executive Director of Canadian Sea Turtles Network (CSTN) will give us a flavor of what a true Sustainability initiative looks like from a Non-profit organization perspective.

Sea Turtles play a pivotal role in maintaining Marine life balance. CSTN is a charitable organization involving scientists, commercial fishermen, and coastal community members that works to conserve endangered sea turtles in Canadian waters and worldwide. The group won the 2007 Gold Canadian Environment Award for Conservation.

Let us experience a Sustainability initiative in its raw form and explore the project management aspects of it coming to play in terms of potentials and challenges.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to make project management processes sustainability-oriented?
  • What objectives should project managers pursue to achieve this goal?
  • How to bring sustainability as a change in different areas of project management, starting from procurement to risk management?
  • Gain more insights into the unique traits of sea turtles and how they affect the biodiversity of Atlantic Canada.
