Theme: Imagine. Inspire. Ignite.
The Alberta Healthy Communities Symposium (AHCS) is an opportunity for wellness champions to come together to network and build upon current community resources and programs which will allow them to build on the roots of health and wellness. With this fundamental and holistic focus on wellness, participants will be inspired to begin, deepen, or evolve Healthy Eating, and Active Living (HEAL) initiatives in their communities. Communities ChooseWell celebrates that our communities come from diverse backgrounds, so whether your work aims to influence grassroots, organizational, or systems level change, the symposium will have inspiring content for all!
This year’s theme: Imagine, Inspire, Ignite, sets the stage for our Champions to gain valuable insights from stories shared by keynotes, speakers, and fellow Champions. Through the shared stories, you’ll gain actionable and tangible content that will, inspire you to take on health and wellness initiatives in your communities.
This year’s symposium will focus on three streams: healthy eating, active living, and storytelling. Stay tuned for program announcements including keynotes, breakout speakers, master classes and more!
The Alberta Recreation & Parks Association would like to acknowledge the First Nations, the Métis, and all of the people across Alberta who share a history and a deep connection with this land. We dedicate ourselves to moving forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in the spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
