Parkland County

Coal Phase-out Mini Documentary


In 2016, the Government of Alberta decided to accelerate the shut down of coal-fired power plants—a worrying plan for the Parkland County locals who’ve come to rely on coal mining jobs for decades.

Working alongside Parkland County and communications agency Calder Bateman, we created this mini-documentary that sheds light on the uncertainty surrounding the community’s future.

We follow the story of three different members of this community and understand how this process will impact their lives and that of their beloved community.
