My Great Neighbourhood Community Virtuals

To help connect residents during these challenging times the Neighbourhood Team hosted a series of Community Virtuals Lunch and Learns, from Fall 2020 through Spring 2021.

From the first session about how to get more trees growing in YYJ, to a documentary about loneliness and the value of neighbourhoods, to community art and how to engage your neighbours on new projects, the series has been designed to connect and inspire residents. Learn more.

We will resume our monthly Lunch & Learns in Fall 2021. Stay tuned for our 2021/22 schedule and topics to be posted later in the summer.
