Powering our Active Economy

Master Hexegon Images TIGHT.jpg

Today, the $3 Trillion global active economy incorporates diverse sectors such as sport, active recreation, health & wellness, and the technology, tourism and media related to these.

In the Calgary region, the active economy includes thousands of organizations and hundreds of thousands of people, powering the economic and social prosperity of our community.

Whereas, Silicon Valley is a leader in technology and London in financial services, Calgary possesses the natural resources - our people and environment - to be a global leader in the active economy.

Join us at ActiveCITY 2019

After the failed plebiscite for the 2026 Olympic & Paralympic bid, many challenged whether our city is still committed to sport and recreation. The ActiveCITY Collective is our response to this challenge, but we know being a global leader will not happen accident. It will only happen through collaboration, planning and commitment.

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

At the ActiveCITY Summit, please join community leaders and experts to debate the future of our active economy. Through dynamic speakers, panels and hands-on working groups, we will debate the biggest questions facing our active economy.  

  1. What is the economic value of the active economy?

  2. What is the social and civic value of the active economy?

  3. How does the active economy contribute to broader economic outcomes?

  4. What will define a world-class active city in the future?

  5. Where and how should we invest to maximize the potential of our active economy?

  6. How can we increase collaboration to reach our potential?
