Awesome Neighbourhoods for a Sustainable Edmonton

In May 2012, The Natural Step, with the support of many leading organizations in Edmonton, hosted a “Dialogue on Sustainability and Prosperity in Edmonton” attended by 50 leading citizens in Edmonton. At this gathering we heard 7 clear messages:

  • Sustainability is local and tangible
  • Work at the neighbourhood scale
  • Engage the voices of generations
  • Big challenges require collaboration
  • Work with people we know and don’t know
  • Learn to collaborative effectively
  • Tap into and unleash our creativity

Based on this feedback and the generous support of the Alberta Real Estate Foundation, the concept of “Awesome Neighbourhoods for a Sustainable Edmonton: What do you declare possible?” was born.
