The Environment & The Green Line

As plans are made to re-start our economy the Environment team invites us to image a brighter climate future.  The Environment team, led by our member organization, the Climate Hub, is asking that the City of Calgary build for not just stimulus but climate through our Green Stimulus plan.

Truth and Reconciliation

Many steps with one goal Our Truth & Reconciliation Research Action Team encompasses both Indigenous Elders and Community Members and Non-Indigenous Leaders that continually examine steps we can take as a society to address the consequences of our ongoing legacy of colonization.

Mental Health and Addictions

Lack of support in the area of mental illness and addiction have been a growing concern for many years.  With the arrival of COVID-19 many experts are concerned about an 'echo pandemic' of mental health challenges.

We Build Leaders

“I went to the training and discovered practical ways that I can build relationships and take action to bring about change in our city.”

Learn About Leadership Training

The Calgary Alliance for the Common Good is everyday people taking powerful action together for the common good.

We develop the diverse voices of our community, building relationships across religious, racial, class, and neighborhood lines.

Then we knit them together one by one to build the power to make the positive changes they want to see in our community, making our shared home a better place to live and thrive.
