Encourage capacity-building for healthy communities
How to implement
- Encourage community members to come together to build relationships and generate strategies for addressing local needs. For example, this could be accomplished by hosting community conversations and feedback sessions.
- Encourage community leaders and other key stakeholders (e.g., staff, students, healthcare professionals) to sponsor and participate in health education (e.g., webinars, conferences). For example, the Alberta Recreation and Parks Association hosts free healthy community symposiums in Edmonton and Calgary on topics related to community health and wellness.
