Engaging Municipal Leaders in Community Wellness Initiatives
Presenters: Communities ChooseWell Leaders
Communities ChooseWell is an initiative of ARPA and Alberta Health that supports and recognizes community action to create active, healthy communities through improving physical activity, healthy eating and social well-being. A significant barrier to achieving these goals is varying degrees of support from municipal political leaders and local government. In this session, three local ChooseWell champions from across Alberta share their learnings, successes and insights about engaging and developing relationships with formal leaders in their communities.
