Finding a common thread to weave Calgary communities together.
CDLI is a network that welcomes you!
Welcome to the Community Development Learning Initiative (CDLI) Calgary website. CDLI aims to be a centralized space that brings residents, community development practitioners and supporters together to learn and act on shared issues around community building. People who share the CDLI vision are engaged in or interested in learning about how to make communities and neighborhoods better places for all. CDLI learners are involved in some aspect of community building.
Our Vision: All people in Calgary welcome each other and work together to take collective action for the common good.
Our Mission: Support people to strengthen communities across Calgary by inspiring learning, engagement and action!
Shared Understanding of Community Development: A process that surfaces shard visions to engage, organise, build relationships and collective capacity of community members to take actions that address their common economic, social, cultural and/or environmental interests.
