Getting Here & Staying Here
We understand that getting to PowerShift takes time and money, and to help make the process easier we’ve put together some tools to help you with organizing travel and accomodation. The best way to get organized to come to PowerShift is just that, to organize. Getting a group of people together from your campus, school, workplace or community to come to PowerShift together and recruit others to join you not only makes getting to PowerShift easier and shared the organizing load, but also helps to lay the groundwork for building long-term organizing networks (not to mention that groups of 5 or more can register as a group and receive a discounted registration).
PowerShift Alberta will be held primarily at the University of Alberta in Amiskwaciwâskahikan – Edmonton. Edmonton is accessible by a wide range of modes of transportation and all venues will be accessible by public transit, although most programming will be within easy walking distance on or around campus. Find out more about Edmonton and other things to do in the city.
If you are planning on driving to PowerShift and have extra space or are looking for a ride, check out our rideshare page where you can post ride offers or look for rides.
In organizing PowerShift we will do our best to find and offer a range of affordable and inexpensive housing options along with setting up billeting for out of town participants with local Edmonton hosts. All information about housing deals at hotels/hostels and the billeting sign-up form for hosts and participants will be available on the Housing page.
We try to raise as much money as possible not just to make PowerShift happen, but to be able to offer bursaries for reduced or waived registrations fees along with stipends to help cover travel and other incidental costs for those who need them. Unfortunately our resources are limited and these bursaries need to be applied for and cannot be guaranteed. More info.
