Skill Sharing Workshops • Conversation Cafes • Community Connections Fair
The 2nd annual Edmonton Resilience Festival consists of hands-on practical workshops, guided Conversation Cafés and a fair showcasing the work of community organizations called the Community Connections Fair. We will also have family and kid friendly indoor and outdoor activities and film screenings.
The theme for this year is Clean Your Commute. Come out and talk with people that know how to commute green – walkers, cyclists… sign up for the Commuter Challenge, and/or just soak in the fun, community and knowledge that will be floating around the festival.
Municipal Councils, residents and MLA’s are cordially invited to an information day on Solar electricity and Biomass energy for communities in Northern Alberta. This will be an opportunity to learn about alternative energy and available funding for municipalities, as well as participate in a regional discussion about the role of alternative energy in our communities.Read more »

We are partnering with Alberta Ecotrust to deliver environmental grants to help support energy literate citizens with energy conserving lifestyles and a strong shift to active and public transportation.
We believe these grants, available to non-profits, community leagues, schools and charities, will engage Edmontonians to work on these challenges and provide them with support to collaborate and to create positive environmental change in their own backyards.
The focus will be on community projects that help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Examples of neighbourhood projects include:
Walking school bus
Installation of solar panels on a community facility
You must attend one of the learning sessions to apply for the grants.
