Since 2006, our community engagement events have brought Edmontonians together to get informed about issues that matter to them. The events are non-partisan but the discussions are frequently political in nature. We cover a range of topics such as elections, the environment, and feminism.  Each occasion provides the opportunity for attendees to engage with each other and the speakers in a safe and non-judgmental space.


Join our mailing list if you're interested in attending an upcoming event. The board typically comes up with the schedule of events at the beginning of each year. If you have an idea for an event or would like to speak at an interVivos event, email us at
