Home Awards & Scholarships ARPA Awards Inclusion Award
Inclusion is the practice of providing everyone with equitable access to opportunities and resources that help enhance and respect the equity and diversity of all individuals. These strategies are vital to reducing inequities and ensuring the benefits of recreation are universal. Inclusive actions foster a sense of belonging and make recreation and parks spaces a safer, more welcoming, and respectful environment for all.
This award recognises the forward thinking of a community, organization, school, or individual who has championed inclusion initiatives, change, or practices in the recreation and parks sector.
Communities, organizations, schools, or individuals in Alberta that have been instrumental in the creation, implementation, or facilitation of a social justice, equity, diversity and/or inclusion initiative for the recreation and parks sector will be considered.
