Vibrant Communities Calgary: Awareness, Engagement and Policy Change

Published on 06/01/2006

By educating Calgarians about the complex realities of poverty and influencing the development of responsive public policies, Vibrant Communities Calgary is trying to create a profound shift in thinking.  It seeks to move from a climate that sees poverty as a personal problem to one in which systemic change makes it possible for individuals and households to improve their circumstances.

This is the second in a series of stories which describe the poverty reduction work of the six Vibrant Communities Trail Builders.
