Greater Edmonton Alliance


The Greater Edmonton Alliance (GEA) is the most exciting thing to happen to Edmonton, sustainability-wise, in forever.

The alliance, composed mostly of churches and unions, has taken on local food and energy efficiency retrofits for existing houses as its two main initiatives.

They have produced some amazing results so far. Among other things,  they packed a city hall meeting with almost 700 people to help save some of Edmonton’s priceless agricultural land last year, and they also organized the very high-profile potato giveaway last summer.

Sustainable Works Launch on Wednesday

If you’ve wondered how to go about retrofitting of your older home, the Sustainable Works program is for you. GEA plans to help retrofit thousands (thousands!) of homes in Edmonton over the coming years. The big launch is on Wednesday . I’ll be there, and I hope that you’ll consider showing your support.


The Greater Edmonton Alliance (GEA) invites you to the launch of Sustainable Works! "Quality Jobs. Affordable Utilities. Healthy Environment."
Sustainable Works is a new, exciting and innovative non-profit cooperative built to help you lower your utility bills, create new green jobs, and reduce our carbon
On Nov 18th, the Greater Edmonton Alliance leaders from a range of families will be sharing their learnings from our series of pilot eco-retrofits. We’ll also be making substantial collective commitments, announcing exciting partnerships and detailing the strategy to retrofit 1000’s of homes in the Greater Edmonton area in the coming years. GEA is inviting you to stand with us on this night. We want you to be part of this important celebration and public action.

What an amazing night! The hall was standing room only, the crowd was supercharged, even the Mayor was slappin' out the high-fives! Now comes the legwork...

Great to hear it Miles. Unfortunately I was laid up sick so I didn't make it. I am VERY excited about what GEA is doing.
