Always looking for reasons to brag about your city? Home of 2013’s Best Farmers Market according to National Geographic? Check. Birthplace of some pretty awesome actors? Check.
Now we have a whole new reason to brag… sustainability! Edmonton has the honour of being one of 34 finalists in the 2014 Earth Hour City Challenge. We were chosen by the World Wildlife Fund from among 163 entrants for impressive actions on climate change. Now, an expert jury will review the actions and commitments of these cities, to ultimately crown one sustainability leader per country!
While the jury deliberates… YOU can do your part to help us win too! In addition to the jury vote, there is a people’s choice vote. So show Edmonton your love, by voting in a number of ways:
Post a picture or video on Instagram of your favourite thing about Edmonton with hashtag #weloveedmonton. You can post an unlimited number of pictures/videos each day, every picture with the #weloveedmonton hashtag will count as one vote! *** Make sure your profile is public or else your vote won’t be counted!
And if helping Edmonton win the campaign isn’t enough… one picture from Instagram and one from Twitter that best exemplify what Edmonton is all about will be winners in our social media contest! Winners will receive iPads!
