A healthy community

A healthy community is more than a group of healthy people. A healthy community is when people work together and decide where to put their time and energy to make the community a better place to live, work, learn, play and age. Because each community has different strengths, challenges, and priorities, there are many different starting points, and many different pathways to creating a healthier community. But they all begin with creating a common vision for the future, and then working together to make it happen.

Imagine the future of your community – three to five years from now. Suppose your community became everything you’ve ever hoped for.

  • What would children, families and adults of all ages in your community be doing and feeling?
  • What would your community look like?
  • Who might share this vision and help to make it happen?
  • What steps can you take with others to move in the direction of a healthier community?

Great things can happen when we begin by imagining a different future.
