Not long after he was elected, Mayor Naheed Nenshi challenged a group of dedicated volunteers to get all Calgarians taking action to make Calgary even better. The Mayor’s Civic Engagement Committee came up with a simple idea of asking every Calgarian to do three things to make their city better and 3 Things for Calgary was born.
Through initiatives like 3 Things for Calgary, City Hall 101 and other projects, this volunteer committee continues to encourage citizens to get involved in their community in a manner that is meaningful to them. The result is a more engaged society.
Now, inspired by Mayor Nenshi and our nation’s 150th birthday celebration in 2017, we’re scaling up 3 Things for Calgary and sharing this idea with Canada!
