EcoCity Edmonton: Community Sustainability Grant Learning Session

Feb 10 2016 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Feb 10 2016 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm

From the City of Edmonton website:

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
  • Tool-lending library

You must attend one of the learning sessions to apply for the grants.
