Can we make Calgary into the most liveable city in Canada? In the world? That’s what the ActiveCity Collective wants to know.

The collective is made up of representatives from sport, recreation, health and wellness, and the technology, tourism and media industries. It’s first meeting was held on Sept. 18 to brainstorm ideas for future collaboration.

And they’d like your participation.

Over the next year, the ActiveCity Collective will engage thousands of Calgarians to develop a collective vision and framework for maximizing the potential of our active economy and transform Calgary into Canada’s most livable region.

“We were overwhelmed with the number of people interested in attending the [first] ActiveCity Summit to start a discussion about the future of Calgary,” said co-organizer of the event, David Finch, a professor at Mount Royal University. “But the real work starts now, as we look to the 300 people who attended the Summit to lead the conversation with 65,000 Calgarians because we want to know their vision of the active city of the future.”
