In the spring of 2016, The City of Calgary along with the Mayor’s Civic Engagement Committee once again hosted City Hall 101 (formerly called We Should Know City Hall) – a free public workshop for citizens to learn about how to get more involved with their City and City Council.
This time around, not only do we have photos to share, we also have a couple of great videos AND an amazing comic strip created by artist Sam Hester to share some of the lessons learned during our workshop.
What is City Hall 101 all about?
Check here for a quick overview of our event as shared by our Chair, Dani DeBoice.
Get Involved at City Hall:
A panel presentation, using the Senior Age Friendly Strategy report presented at City Council’s Community and Protective Services Committee meeting, allowed us the opportunity to talk about the many ways you can get involved. Our sincere thanks to citizens Catherine Brownlee, Ellen Close, Nabeel Ramji and City of Calgary Director of Calgary Neighbourhoods, Katie Black for taking the time to share their passion and expertise. Check out the video highlighting the panel presentation for great information about how you can be involved at City Hall. And, last but certainly not least, here is a graphic representation of how to get more comfortable presenting at a City Council meeting.
