Calgarians enjoy a high quality life because they feel good about themselves and the city they live in. We have a strong sense of community, feel safe and at peace, and are healthy in both body and spirit. We participate in our community in a diversity of ways and always have the opportunity to learn about new and different ways to contribute.
All aspects of life in Calgary provide opportunities for aesthetic enjoyment. We recognize and protect our natural and built environments for their beauty. Our traditions, values and distinctive characteristics are used to enhance physical and human resources. Opportunities for aesthetic enjoyment are accessible to all.
Creative self-expression is cultivated and nurtured as part of everyone’s life. We renew ourselves, using our unique gifts and talents, through creative self-expression. There is a wide range of opportunities for creative expression.
Calgary is known for its attention to a healthy lifestyle. We sustain physical, mental and social well-being. In circumstances in which health is compromised, we can easily access knowledge and services. Ecological, social and economic interconnectedness is reflected in our support for well-being.
We value opportunities for continuous personal growth and development. We are empowered by learning and, as a result, can make substantial improvements to our own and others’ lives. The community is a learning ground for all.
We create individual meaning, purpose and connectedness in our lives for our own benefit and that of others. We respect and embrace the ways in which others choose to create meaning, purpose and connectedness.
We live in peace. We are safe in our homes and throughout our city. We believe and behave in ways that reflect our respect and consideration for all life forms. We have adequate income and access to resources. We live with each other in unity.
By 2016, 95 per cent of Calgary parents report that they allow their children over six years old to play unsupervised on their own blocks.
We are continually renewed by participating in activities that refresh our bodies and minds; active lifestyles contribute to our abilities to restore and enhance our senses of personal and community well-being.
We participate in mutually supportive and generous relationships. Interactions are based on mutual respect: with oneself, other persons, other cultures, other beings and the larger whole of which all are a part. These healthy relationships help people understand their human, cultural, historic and natural systems.
We are confident and satisfied. We know we are valued and respected. We collectively understand and act upon our inner potential so we can achieve sustainable development.
We have a sense of belonging, friendship and identity within the context of our groups and neighbourhoods. We honour and celebrate diversity. We act as collective stewards of our values, traditions, institutions and the natural environment.
