As a not-for-profit company, Newo’s primary aim is to foster healthy communities alongside healthy ecosystems. Newo is committed to working with communities across Canada and around the globe to build the world we all wish for our children and grandchildren.
Below is a brief overview of Newo’s partnerships and initiatives. If you have an idea or would like to help, please give us a call.
- Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Awards
Along with the Alberta Association for Life Wide Living and Maskwa & Associates, Newo is a co-host for the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Awards (artsawards.ca) in the month of September 2019 throughout the Battle River Watershed (www.arts-2019.org).
- Camrose Refugee Coordinating Committee (CRCC)
Newo partners with CRCC and Magnum Mechanical to train and employ recent refugees to Alberta through our water retrofit program (www.newo.energy/water).
- Battle River Watershed Alliance (BRWA):
Newo Global Energy and BRWA have partnered to provide climate change education for the Battle River watershed region. In the fall of 2017, Newo supported BRWA’s 2017 climate change bike tour through central Alberta.
- Aki Energy & Yellowhead Tribal Council
Newo partners with Aki Energy (www.akienergy.com) and the Yellowhead Tribal Council Development Foundation (YTC-DF) to develop solar training for First Nations communities in Alberta and across Canada. These projects use local solar installations to develop skills and build local capacity (www.newo.energy/education).
- Reconciliation Education
Newo works with Roy and Judy Louis of Maskwa & Associates (maskwa.net) to offer education on reconciliation. Most recently we partnered to facilitate a blanket exercise at Our Lady of Mount Pleasant School in Camrose, Alberta.
- Global Education for Girls and Women
Far ahead of solar technology, it is important to educate and empower girls and women if we are to address climate change and global problems (www.drawdown.org/solutions). Newo is partnering with local community organizations in Nepal to enhance education programming for young girls and women.
