In June 2013, the Town of Strathmore was awarded the 2015 Alberta 55 Plus Summer Games. From early on in the planning stages, the Games’ Board of Directors decided that sustainability would be a very important theme to integrate into all aspects of the Games, appointing a Director of Sustainability whose primary goal was to reduce the event’s overall carbon footprint. The Strathmore Games’ Sustainability Committee focused its efforts on 10 major projects that all sought to minimize the Games’ environmental impact and make those Games the greenest ever.
 
Two years later, in July 2015, the Summer Games were an incredible success that left a lasting impression on thousands of Albertans. What’s more, the sustainability initiatives established for the Strathmore Games were the beginning of a legacy—the City of Leduc also implemented its own sustainability committee and focused on four sustainability goals for its 2016 Alberta 55 Plus Summer Games. The likelihood of sustainability being a lynchpin of future Alberta 55 Plus Games appears very promising.
 
One of the projects established by the Sustainability Committee for the Strathmore 55 Plus Summer Games was to continue the committee once the Games ended. In late-2015, the Sustainability Committee was established by Strathmore Town Council. This committee seeks to create and implement environmentally sustainable initiatives in Strathmore that, like those initiatives identified during the games, will reduce our carbon footprint and benefit future generations. This Sustainability section of the Town of Strathmore website has three primary purposes:
  1. to identify projects that the committee is working on,
  2. to provide tips on reducing your environmental footprint, and
  3. to serve as an educational resource.
 
Stay tuned to this page as there will be new information added to it frequently. Are you implementing sustainable initiatives in your life? We’d love to hear about it on the Town of Strathmore Facebook page, or on Twitter @Strathmore_Town.
 
Yours,
The 2016 Strathmore Sustainability Committee
