The City of Airdrie, together with partners the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association, One Simple Act and Earth Day Canada, are happy to congratulate the City of Camrose, Town of Sundre and Village of Breton for winning in their respective categories in the Community EcoAction Challenge.

The Challenge, which closed June 30, encouraged residents of Alberta to make simple changes to their daily lives in order to make a big impact on the environment. Fourteen communities took part in the challenge, which was initiated by the City of Airdrie.

“Although we, of course, would have liked to see Airdrie win this challenge, we are proud of all the winning communities for their success,” said Mayor Linda Bruce.

“We all win in challenges like this that get residents thinking about ways they can lessen their impact on the environment and make small changes that make a big difference.”

The challenge officially began on May 31, which coincided with Environment Week. Winning municipalities were named in three size-related categories (small, mid-sized and large sized municipalities) based on the number of participants signed up per capita.

Here is a list of the communities that took part in the EcoAction Challenge, and the number of participants who made changes to their daily lives:

• Camrose – 331

• Airdrie – 168

• Grand Prairie – 141

• Beaumont – 20

• Sundre – 20

• Stoney Plain – 19

• Nanton – 16

• Breton – 8

• Edmonton – 5

• Calgary – 4

• Blackfalds – 3

• Crossfield – 3

• Stettler – 1
