NextGen Month Events
Come catch us at these special events all through June!
Pecha Kucha Night 28 - Thursday, June 1, 6:30pm - 9pm
As Canada goes through a period of reflection, NextGen is hosting an evening of Edmontonians intent on engaging, inspiring, and challenging their communities with ideas on how we can grow together into the next 150 years. Presenters will discuss their visions for building a stronger, more inclusive, and more sustainable Canada.
Join us for this very special PKN on June 1 at MacLab Theatre inside the Citadel Theatre. This evening wouldn't have been possible without the support of our event sponsors, Edmonton Heritage Council and Colliers International.
100in1 Day - Saturday, June 3, 10am - 1pm
100in1Day is a day to turn ideas into reality all over the city by celebrating the cumulative power of small changes and temporary projects. On June 4, Edmontonians, communities, organizations will be hosting activities and projects that aim to improve a public space and demonstrate how a community might achieve more lasting positive change.
Join ECVO, Edmonton's NextGen and the City of Edmonton at our outdoor patio space in Michael Phair Park on 100in1day. We hope that you'll visit and chat about volunteerism, learn about volunteer opportunities, and share your stories about how volunteering benefits you and your community as a permanent part of the Edmonton Chamber of Voluntary Organization's 150 Edmonton Volunteer Voices Project.
Pride Parade - Saturday, June 10, 11am - 2pm
Pull out your most colourful attire from you closet and show you pride at the annual Edmonton Pride Parade! Be on the lookout for the NextGen float and be sure to say hello!
