EVDS

As a grad student, I would love to see the University of Calgary's Faculty of Environmental Design involved. Be it a reconstruction of the latest Solar Decathlon project, or something new and sustainable, that can be used as a cooperative within the community, there is a lot of great design potential here! Check out the faculty's website, too!

More Community Gardens/Cultural Centres!

A community garden is an excellent place for not only great food to be grown, but for ideas to be shared, relationships to be made and culture to be celebrated! Think of this: a community garden marketplace with local foods, musicians, visual artists, etc. all coming together ...more »

Make Culture a Part of City Planning Process

Get the City of Calgary to sign on to Agenda 21 for Culture- an internationally recognized guideline to help local governments support the production and dissemination of culture for all citizens.
