Event Details

Edmonton' s NextGen is 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.

We welcome all ward 3 voters for a stimulating non-partisan discussion about the upcoming municipal election. This event will begin in the lounge at Capital Pizza &Steakhouse at 5:00pm. At 6:30 attendees will walk to the forum at Londonderry Jr. High School to hear from the candidates. 

In a fun and safe environment learn how to vote, why voting is important, discuss hot topics being considered this election and hopefully meet some friendly neighbours! No prior political knowledge or involvement is  required - only an open mind and positive attitude!

Light refreshments will be provided, attendees may purchase their own beverages.

Edmonton Municipal Election 2017

On October 16, 2017, Edmontonians will head out to the voting booths to decide our next city council in the 2017 Edmonton Municipal Election. As the next generation of Edmontonians, you have the opportunity to have a voice in deciding Edmonton's future, and we want to make sure you have all the tools and information you need to make an informed decision come election day.

 

This year, Edmonton NextGen has recruited a talented team of volunteers from every ward in the city to host local and relevant events close to home. Our Ward Ambassadors are putting together fun and inspiring events designed to connect you with engaged fellow neighbours and give you the opportunity to discuss issues relevant to you and your community. Events will be happening in every ward, and each ward event will have its own flare and flavour. All events will be hosted right before the ward's scheduled candidate forum to give you the chance to get up to speed on important issues that will be raised and discussed by candidates. Following our ward event, we will all head down to attend the forums together.

 

Edmonton NextGen is committed to giving voice to the next generation, which is why we believe so strongly in the importance of voting and raising awareness about this fundamental civic responsibility. All events organized by Edmonton NextGen are strictly nonpartisan. Our Ward Ambassadors have all received specialized training from Apathy is Boring to facilitate welcoming, nonpartisan discussions at our ward events.

 

You can find the most up-to-date information about each ward's event on Facebook or by emailing your Ward Ambassadors at elections@edmontonnextgen.ca (The full list of events coming soon)!

Edmonton's NextGen

Edmonton's NextGen is an initiative of the City of Edmonton created in 2006. 

NextGen aims to:

  • Create and sustain a network of engaged citizens, ages 18 to 40,

  • Provide a platform for the sharing and advancement of new and emerging ideas,

  • Give voice to the interests and perspectives of a diverse demographic, and

  • Serve as a conduit between the next generation and the City of Edmonton, including administration and city council.

Its vision is for Edmonton to be a vibrant city shaped by the lives and leadership of citizens ages 18 to 40.

Through community and civic projects, events and leadership opportunities, Edmonton’s NextGen fosters young leaders and provides a platform for initiatives of interest to the next generation.

NextGen is powered by volunteer NextGen Committee members who represent the community and the City of Edmonton as well as Working Group volunteers who help implement the work of NextGen.
