Active Community Strategy Guide
This extensive guide was developed for the Alberta Recreation and Parks Association Active Community Strategy initiative that took place in 2010-2013. It includes four sections. The first is for those interested in increasing physical activity in their community: citizens, community leaders and organizations. It provides reasons why your community will want to develop an Active Community Strategy, information about what an Active Community Strategy is, and introduces how the strategy will get more people, more active, more often. The second section introduces and explains the Active Community Strategy Model. The content in this section is the basis for strategy development and action. If you are a community leader, citizen, facilitator working with communities or provincial leader, this section is for you. The third focuses on community process. It is a facilitator guide meant to assist leaders and facilitators who are working with communities to build an Active Community Strategy. And the final section includes a variety of tools and resources that support building an Active Community Strategy.
