State of our City // Fate of our City : Sustainable Calgary Turns 20
Sustainable Calgary celebrates its 20th anniversary, and we want to celebrate in the way we know best: conversation, knowledge sharing, and of course, great food! This two day event will celebrate our accomplishments and projects, evaluate Calgary’s sustainability, and ask the question: where do we go from here?
We invite all Calgarians to join us. Tickets are a suggested donation of $10, but we encourage you to give what you are able. If it is less than $10, no problem, if it is more, great! We will also be offering charitable receipts for donations of $20 or more.
Friday, November 30th from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

“Julian Agyeman is a Professor of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, USA. He is the originator of the concept of ‘just sustainabilities,’ the intentional integration of social justice and sustainability, defined as ‘the need to ensure a better quality of life for all, now and into the future, in a just and equitable manner, whilst living within the limits of supporting ecosystems.’”
Saturday, December 1st from 9:00 am – 3:30 pm
Join us for a collaborative workshop where we will be looking at our updated State of Our City report and the 2005 Citizens Agenda. We would love your help discussing, interpreting and developing context around our latest set of indicators. And, building on the information we gather and the content of the 2005 Citizens Agenda, we want to discuss strategic policy priorities moving forward. Have the strategic priorities remained the same? Have they changed? How can our current programs move these strategic priorities forward? A delicious lunch and ample coffee will be provided.
We look forward to celebrating with you!
