A tool library that lends out power tools so that you can use them without having to buy them. A program to get more school children walking and biking to school. A church’s renewable education program and solar panels. These are some examples of successful projects funded through our EcoCity Edmonton grants. Most importantly, all these projects were initiated and implemented by people in our community.
Communities are at the heart of any city, and the people that form the communities help drive change. As such, Edmontonians have an important role in reducing our contribution to climate change and preparing locally for future climatic changes and events.
To support these actions, the City of Edmonton in partnership with Alberta Ecotrust and the Edmonton Community Foundation, offers funding for community projects to help transition Edmonton into an energy sustainable and climate resilient city.
Application deadline for the EcoCity Edmonton Grant is April 1, 2019.
