Imagine Lethbridge!

Imagine for a moment that you live in Canada’s healthiest city.

Does Lethbridge have what it takes to hold that title now? What needs to change before it can?

Wouldn’t it be awesome if some of those improvements could come to fruition thanks to your input?

This month you can add your voice to an exciting event designed to get the ball rolling – and keep it rolling.

The Imagine Lethbridge Healthy Cities Forum: A Community Conversation to Begin to Make Lethbridge the Healthiest City in Canada happens May 24-26 from 10-11:45 a.m. It takes place online and it’s free, facilitated by Healthy Lethbridge and the Alberta Health Services Design Lab Team.

World-class speakers will share their expertise on creating a healthy city roadmap; a place where citizens don’t just live – they thrive and can age well within the ecological constraints of the planet.

Register now and get ready to interact with:

  • Dr. Trevor Hancock, one of the founders of the (now global) Healthy Cities and Communities movement and co-founder of both the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment & the Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care.
  • Dr. Kim Raine, who led a five-year community-university-government partnership called Healthy Alberta Communities and currently co-leads the Alberta Policy Coalition for Chronic Disease Prevention and Alberta’s Nutrition Report Card on Food Environments for Children and Youth.
  • Joyce Tang, an urban planner and landscape architect who has always believed in the relationship between human health and the built environment.

Each day’s session will run just one and a half hours – short and sweet – but if you miss one you can catch it later – they will all be recorded and posted to the Healthy Lethbridge YouTube Channel:
