How do you think Edmonton is doing on an environmental scale? The recently-released 2014 Report on the Environment gives us a snapshot of just that.
Edmonton’s Report on the Environment is the City’s annual environmental report card. The report looks at programs in the categories within our environmental strategic plan, The Way We Green, and evaluates how each program is doing, the challenges they face and how they can improve.
What was big for 2014?

The City waited to find a fun way to express the data in the report to Edmontonians and get people interested in learning more. The creative juices started flowing…
Would you ever have thought you could email a tree? Well, now you can! You can find messages like this one around the city in places like LRT stations and walking trails. They encourage you to contact the environment to learn more and have a funny interaction with an uniquely Edmonton character at the same time!

This is also your last chance to enter the Report on the Environment’s Calendar Contest! This year, along with publishing the report, the City is creating a calendar to help share information in a more creative way. To fill the pages of the calendar we are hosting an art contest to bring the calendar to life! The contest closes on October 16. For more information about the contest and how to enter please see the contest rules posted here.
