The following report represents the thoughts and experiences of 150 adult and youth dialoguesession participants that took place in eight communities throughout Alberta. Each dialogue session focused on three key themes: celebration (community successes), reflection (communitychallenges/gaps), and vision (future goals). The community dialogues allowed the project to get a clear understanding of the critical challenges that many Aboriginal peoples face from the perspective of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples on the ground. In parallel with the adult dialogues, youth dialogues also took place. The intention of these dialogues was to engage youth and highlight their perspective on the issues that they face in theircommunities, particularly around their own individual long-term development and theireducational and employment prospects. The youth dialogues were also an opportunity to bringcreative perspectives to the table and to engage youth in understanding their role in taking actionto address some of these issues in their communities.
