Building vibrant communities

Bringing you for the first time, a meetup to connect the city of #YEG and its various vibrant communities. Come mingle, chat and connect! Edmonton’s Community MeetUp is presented by La Connexional in collaboration with The Backyard.

Since inception, La Connexional has had the privilege to incubate, collaborate, work or interact with over 150+ community-driven organizations in Edmonton, the City of Champions! At La Connexional, we believe that change starts with a bonjour, a hola, a hello; we believe that change starts with you!

Edmonton is home to a wide variety of vibrant communities and community-driven initiatives, programs, institutions and much more. It is about time, we come together, all in one place and get to know each other in a nonwork related environment.

Are you interested in community building? Are you part of an organization that is creating or wants to create impact? Do you want to meet and network with other community-oriented businesses and enthusiasts in your city, then you know where to be on Wednesday, September 21st between 3:30 and 730 pm.

Tickets are FREE ( donations are encouraged to help cover the cost associated with the logistics of the event). What better way to end the summer than to mingle outdoors, play games and connect with like-minded people .

What is Community? How do you define community? Those will be *some of the ice breaking* questions of the day. We are excited to connect with you!
