The Community Engagement Action Team is a community based society which collectively share resources to promote a healthy, thriving and engaged community for the people of Edson and Yellowhead County through various initiatives and educational events that enhance the safety and well being of all. CEAT has partnered with Velvet Energy for the Bullying Awareness t-shirt campaign. This fall, new students in Kindergarten and grades 7+ will receive t-shirts to wear as part of the Bullying Awareness Campaign. The kindergartners will receive the PINK design from last year. Our older students will be receiving a black t-shirt "Be Kind. It Only Takes One." as designed by students in Edson.
VISION: A healthy, thriving, engaged community
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
The Community Engagement Action Team and the Edson Community participated in the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge from June 1 – 30, 2021.
We know that the COVID-19 pandemic brought many challenges and many of us have had to adjust to cancelled or virtual programming. Helping to strengthen communities through physical activity, recreation, and sport, the Community Better Challenge is awarded $100,000 to the community who rallied the most participants, community organizations and accumulated the most active minutes during the challenge.
Residents of Edson were encouraged to participate in our virtual Community Better program on the CEAT Facebook page.
Every Monday in June, a virtual meditation and yoga class were posted for the community to enjoy.
