June 2 to 6, 2019
Since 1971, Canadian Environment Week has been a time to reflect on our impact on the environment and strive to make positive changes in the ways we interact and affect the natural world.
Environment Week includes World Environment Day, Clean Air Day, and World Oceans Day, and here in Edmonton there are events happening throughout the week for everyone!
Check out what’s going on in the city during Environment Week and beyond:
Eco Solar Tours: June 1 and 2
An annual weekend event featuring energy-efficient and renewable energy technology at various open houses, all within the greater Edmonton area. This event does not require registration unless you want to sign up for CAGBC's bike tour of 5 homes.
