About Imagine Cities
444 7 Ave SW, Calgary, Alberta T2P 0X8, CA
We inform the public, inspire action, and act as a catalyst for creating collaborative solutions that strengthen the capacity for cities to adapt in a rapdily changing world.
We are a cities research and innovation nonprofit preparing communities for the future.
We envision cities as vibrant inclusive spaces where engaged residents are informed and inspired to build smart urban solutions. These cities enable residents to contribute to the social fabric of their communities and foster opportunities, belonging and happiness.
Guided by our indicators and supported by systems thinking, we collect and share cities research from around the world in an effort to more fully understand challenges and opportunities in cities.
We bring together digital content that will not only give you the skills needed to better understand the complexity of your city and community, but also the tools needed to effectively respond to improve life in your neighbourhood.
The greatest leaps in human progress have always been the result of our ability to work together in large numbers. Through activation, we provide resources to community organizations to make the incremental steps needed to build great neighborhoods. Whether it's connecting organizations with each other or to post-secondary students, we will find creative ways to provide the support needed to advance local change.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
