Calgary At Home
The City of Calgary is pleased to announce a new collection of online activities and resources for Calgarians of all ages.
Calgary.ca/athome features programs and activities for kids, youth, seniors and families. Program leaders from Recreation, Parks and Calgary Neighbourhoods have developed videos, instructions and learning modules for everything from fitness, to crafts and games, to ways to engage with nature. Our partners at the Calgary Zoo, Glenbow Museum, Calgary Public Library, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and TELUS Spark also have a section on the page with links to their wonderful online programs and activities.
The City of Calgary is encouraging citizens to commit to three simple acts of kindness to support their neighbours, their community and the city.
Calgarians are renowned for our spirit of generosity, especially during times of crisis but, sometimes, it can be difficult to know exactly how to help. That’s why we’re launching www.calgary.ca/helpingothers – an online collection of resources, ideas and inspiration on how you can help others during the pandemic.
Once you’ve chosen your three simple acts of kindness, share them on social media and join these community-led movements that are gaining popularity for their messages of positivity: #3Things4Neighbours, #AlbertaCares, #SupportLocalYYC and #yycHubs.
Visit www.calgary.ca/helpingothers for:
- Tip sheets on how to connect with your neighbours, community and the city
- Printable tools and resources, like Neighbour Bingo and Connection Cards
- Toolkit on how to start your own Neighbourhood Pod
- YYC volunteer opportunities
