YYC Climate Expo and Parade

Friday, September 20th – 3 pm to 6 pm, Calgary Municipal Plaza

The Climate Expo and Parade is being held during the Calgary kick-off to a week of climate change action and education, happening all over the world. This event is for everyone who is concerned about climate change. It is a non-partisan opportunity to bring our voices together, support the youth in their climate action, and to learn how you can get involved with local projects and organizations already working on addressing climate change.

Parade with us. The route is wheelchair-accessible, and is open for anyone to watch or be an active participant. Show up in your work clothes or come in cosplay, everyone is welcome. The parade will begin at 5 pm from City Hall. Sign up for the parade HERE!

Come learn and connect at great workshops and educational tables, with youth speakers at the Expo. The expo begins at 3 pm at City Hall and will run until 6:00pm. Sign up for the Expo HERE!

Tell your friends and family about the event. Follow us to learn about everything happening in Calgary during the International Week for Future and Climate Justice (Sept 20-27th). Become an active advocate yourself. There’s no better way to make an impact.

Full Moon Bike Ride

Friday, October 11th

A FUN, FREE EVENT – Full Moon Rides are focused on casual paced, fun adventures along our city’s lovely pathway and parks network. Suitable for all ability levels, we only go as fast as the slowest rider. Never been on a group ride before? Join us for a guaranteed good time.

On these rides, we usually head to a local park and build a bonfire… but we like to shake things up a bit so, sometimes we stop at coffee shops, micro-breweries, restaurants or we combine it with other bike events along the way.

The weather will dictate our final destination, we may sometimes ride to an indoor location. Lights are mandatory!!!

Meet at the shop (1325 1 Street SE) at 7:30 pm. Ride departs at 8:00pm sharp.
