TRACK MEÆT brings together wayfinding, microfunding, and an exciting scavenger hunt for a night that is like no other.
Use your body and mind
(this time you won’t be blind)
To find your way around
The streets of E-town
A night of puzzles and games
Involving both brawns and brains!
Follow the clues (the “Tweets”)
For fun times and good eats!
Attendees will enjoy an evening of scavenger hunting and strategy. Starting from a central location, you’ll join an eight-person team to conquer the hunt and solve the puzzles. By the end of the evening, each team will discover the secret final location, where you’ll be treated to a celebratory feast and listen to Edmontonians pitch their cause/project. Finally, vote for the winner to receive your collective pot of gold!
Tickets are $25.00 (including fees). $10.00 of this ticket goes directly into the funding pot.
What is MEÆT?
MEÆT is a local crowdfunding event designed to bring us together for a meal and listen to a variety of home-grown ideas. The one thing all the presenters have in common is that they need your funding to bring their idea to reality.
You can (1) apply to present your project, or (2) experience the presentations and vote for your favorite. Though no matter which side of dining table you are on; you will enjoy a dinner with excellent conversation with like minding philanthropists. So come donate $10 towards something awesome!
The best presentation (as determined by the votes) receives the night’s funding.
Located in Siberia, Norilsk is the world’s northernmost city with a population of more than 100,000, and it’s not just one of the coldest cities of the world—it’s also one of the filthiest. Nickel ore smelting has transformed the landscape into one of the ten most polluted places on Earth.

While food banks and similar centres provide those in need with immediate access to food, local food security projects address the nutritional needs of low-income individuals, while also empowering them with confidence and the knowledge needed to produce food and be self-sufficient. Our guest speaker will focus on a series of community gardens being run by E4C in Edmonton’s inner city area. He will then talk about a project in development that will hopefully lead to the creation of a series of food hubs, or centres that teach low-income individuals how to grow their own food.
Wish I could go to this.
"For too long we’ve been building streets as though they have one function–to move cars quickly. The reality is that streets can to do more than just move cars. They can move people on foot, on bikes, on transit, without hurting vehicular throughput and safety. They can be more than a way to get somewhere else. Good streets are good places, too – public places where people meet, sit and socialize, conduct business, wander about, play, and more.
This new book uses evidence from completed street projects from around the United States in order to help communities imagine alternative futures for their streets. The book does not show hypothetical street re-designs, but actual examples from typical communities to show how they did what they did and see what resulted from the change.”
