The Edmonton Social Planning Council is an independent, non-profit, non-partisan social research organization, with registered charitable status. Our focus is social research, particularly in the areas of low income and poverty. ESPC is a source of knowledge and expertise on social issues within our community.
Through rigorous research, detailed analysis, and community engagement, we deepen community understanding of social planning issues, influence policy, and spark collaborative actions that lead to positive social change.

Join us in our series of free lunchtime talks about social issues and learn about diverse ways to help create a community in which all people are full and valued participants.

This Lunch & Learn is on Vital Signs 2020! Vital Signs is an annual check-up conducted by Edmonton Community Foundation, in partnership with the Edmonton Social Planning Council, to measure how the community is doing.
This year’s topic is about Millennials in Edmonton, focusing on all things related to this dynamic but often misunderstood generation. This edition of Vital Signs will focus on their financial realities (e.g. student debt load, precarious work), their activism and engagement (e.g. voting patterns, political causes, philanthropy), their use of technology (e.g. social media, smartphone apps, e-commerce), and are setting trends that are changing the world.
