Welcome to the Working Page for the Calgary Outdoor Literacy Network
Introduction: The renewal process for Calgary's Sport Policy opens a door for the outdoor education and activity community to engage with the city to promote non-competitive outdoor activity to a much greater degree than has been possible in the past. A major reason for this opportunity is the change in how the sport community sees sport promotion given the rising acceptance of the Physical Literacy Philosophy.
A meeting was held at the University of Calgary on July 19th, 2016 to inform invited leaders from the outdoor community of the possibilities and to gauge interest in forming a working group to take advantage of opportunity.
July 19th Meeting
It was agreed to work on a collaborative project to craft a program that would deliver outdoor literacy; to inform the City of Calgary that we were gong to be doing this; and to request a seat at the table for the remainder of the sport policy renewal process.
