Description

Welcome to our 2017 Wellbeing Dialogue: Embracing a Livable and Healthy City through Strong Cultural and Social Connections

As we strive for an all-encompassing urban wellbeing, what role does the City of Vancouver’s Healthy City Framework play in guiding us to find the enlightening intersection between embracing a sustainable environment, heritage conservation, cultural community connection, and cultural expression?

What challenges will we encounter as we attempt to overcome the stereotypes of wellbeing, and what opportunities will arise as we use this wellbeing redefinition as a basis for building a more inclusive society? What role does culture and heritage play in the goal of achieving livability? How can every one of us contribute to make our community healthier and more livable?

Join us to explore diverse aspects of the urban wellbeing landscape and discuss what is the societal understanding of wellbeing in the 21st Century. Above all, we would love to hear about your ideas and point of views.
