On May 30, 2018 a group of Movement Builders reached consensus on a foundation for this movement.  It's early days and this is intended to evolve with the work and as more leaders and organizations gather to shape it.


Early Movement

Strengthen the coordination and collaboration amongst organizations and leaders who are responsible for getting Albertans physically active through a full range of sport, active living and active recreation.  Create better alignment with each other and with provincial, national and global policies and frameworks.  Create a common voice to mobilize more resources and promote and protect the health of Albertans through regular physical activity.



Future Movement

Together we create a cohesive and coherent physical activity ecosystem for Albertans to thrive and be among the most physically active and healthiest people in Canada.  



Movement Building Principles

  • Shared leadership utilizing the diverse content and context experts throughout the Province

  • Widely engaged activators, ambassadors and partners

  • Energy focused at a systems level, elevating the work of the collective organizations and transforming the environment they operate in

  • Advance stakeholder relationships up the continuum: networking⇒coordination⇒cooperation⇒collaboration

  • Align and harmonize our strategies with a positive narrative

  • Tell our story about the impressive power and potential of our work to a healthy, active Alberta
