  3. Life in Edmonton Threads / Posts  Last Post

    This forum deals with the fabric that defines what it’s like to live and play in Edmonton. From sports to volunteering, Edmonton’s parks and river valley, and the proposed 2017 World’s Fair – here’s your chance to discuss those things that matter to you about living in this great city.

    1. On the behest of the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues, this forum will discuss the issues surrounding redevelopment of mature areas. More descriptors to come.

    2. Edmonton has a vibrant and broad-based cultural scene, easily one of the most exciting in Canada, if not North America. Check this site for show announcements about theatre, cinema, shows, festivals, concerts, people, the arts in general, and other forms of entertainment. Post your thoughts, comments, announcements here.

    3. There are literally dozens of museums, large and small, that tell the history of Edmonton and area yet you rarely see anything on the forum about them. This forum is C2E's attempt to fix that error. History is the foundation we build our future on and our community, like a home, needs a strong foundation to last. Rather than allow it to be overwhelmed, ignored or left to the persistent few lets create a section where it has it's own voice. Working with the area Museums and Edmonton Heritage Council C2E could create a history/heritage section that would give voice and story to the amazing and exciting history of Edmonton and allow smaller museums to have a voice and promote themselves to the community.

    5. How do we identify the areas where new schools are required? How can our existing schools be renewed so that they remain sustainable? How can school space be transformed into valuable space for the community when student enrolment is insufficient to keep the facility open? These questions will form the basis for dialogue with parents, EPSB staff and other interested stakeholders over the next several months. The answers to these questions will help the Edmonton Public School Board (EPSB) to develop a plan for managing student space now and into the future. There is an opportunity for YOU to become involved in these discussions, in a variety of ways.

    Most people living in Edmonton, and certainly members of C2E, know that Edmonton is one (and the largest) of dozens of communities that make up the Capital Region. This forum deals with topics and issues that many believe are crucial to the future growth of the capital region, including air and rail links, education, politics, and transportation and infrastructure.
