On February 16 we hosted our 27th edition of Pecha Kucha Nights with an incredible audience of over 600 people! We were fortunate this time around to be partnered with Winter City Edmonton for their annual Winter Cities Shake-Up Conference, which brought delegates from around the world to discuss how to live well–through business, design and culture–when the temperature drops. NextGen joined the conversation by inviting PKN presenters that addressed how they personally embrace the chill.
On Sep. 28, the City Edmonton's Urban Planning Committee endorsed a new urban bike grid for the downtown core. The plan was brought forward by Stantec and involves two-way lanes that would cover 7.1 km of roadway within two blocks of most downtown destinations. With a growing population and a new arena making our downtown busier all the time, the plan is a thoughtful investment.
Have an interest in building a better Edmonton, working with a group of engaged peers, and developing crucial leadership skills? We're seeking three engaged and highly motivated people to join the NextGen Committee!
