What is NextGen?

We're a group of young, passionate, and community-minded individuals who are taking the future into our own hands by creating a city that attracts and gives voice to the 18-40 year old generation by connecting people, places, communities, and ideas.




NextGen City Jam is a one-of-a-kind concert where you volunteer 10 hours for a ticket to the show.  It’s going to be an epic celebration of volunteerism in YEG! You can sign up to attend City Jam starting June 1-November 28.


With MEÆT, we come together to make the funding decisions ourselves, now.  Applying for a grant is intentionally simple to encourage broad participation and rapid impact.


Pecha Kucha Night has been described as a grown-up “show and tell”, with a diverse range of presentation topics, reflecting the unique nature of each presenting city.
