Our research, policy proposals, and co-design processes have led to some exciting and innovative outcomes. Bridgeland’s 4th Avenue flyover project, an idea that came out of our work with the community, won a national award. The community and their partners took the concept to the next level and made it happen!
Our co-design work with Marlborough led to a partnership with the Federation of Calgary Communities. FCC’s micro grant program, Activate YYC, gave communities all over Calgary an opportunity to make their catwalks better places for people.Active Neighbourhoods Canada

Governments all over the world are creating spaces for people. Research tells us that neighbourhoods experiencing low-incomes are more likely to have inadequate infrastructure and pedestrian collisions, and less access to parks and green space. Now more than ever, people need space to move around their cities safely and they need that space to maintain their mental and physical health.
Why Sustainable Calgary?
For the past two decades, Sustainable Calgary has been the product of partnerships and relationships. We collaborate with other organizations and convene with community around big questions and ideas. Health equity underpins our work, and we believe that to make communities equitable, people should have a say in how the public spaces around them are built. Our unique co-design process brings together locals and experts to design healthy neighbourhoods, and has been used successfully in communities across the country.
