Gareth Thomson is passionate about advancing education about energy, climate, and environment in lockstep. He has over thirty years of experience in the field, including his recent role as Executive Director of the Alberta Council for Environmental Education, a group he founded in 2006. He has taught high school, served on Canmore town council, and has two engineering degrees. Gareth lives in Canmore with his wife Kelly, where he divides his time between parenting three exceptional young people, and exploring little-known hiking trails and hidden valleys with his hyperactive friends.
