Convenient Living is Killing Us
Speakers: Sue Scott, Dr. Dwayne Sheehan, Nadine Van Wyk
Convenience is a cornerstone of contemporary lifestyles, and it’s killing us. Canada’s recreation sector can and must do more. This presentation highlights how Calgary’s Cardel Place is using evidence-based research to: pioneer local solutions to the national challenge of sedentary behaviour and physical inactivity, raise healthier generations, and redefine the work of Canada’s public recreation facilities. Informed by the Raise the Bar research project, Cardel Place is crafting new models for curriculum, facility design and business practices.
