Initiatives

We have a number of initiatives with three goals in mind: to engage, inform and empower the next generation of Edmontonians between the ages of 18 and 40. We create opportunities for next geners to help shape Edmonton and give them a platform for new and emerging ideas. We want everyone to get involved in their communities as a way to move Edmonton towards being a vibrant, healthy and future-focused city.
