About the Soul of the City Speaker Series
Due to greater worker mobility, global cities are competing to retain their most creative residents and to attract talented newcomers. Only by understanding the needs of their citizens and by providing them with a high quality of life, can cities appeal to the 'creative classes' and prosper by fostering greater social cohesion.
Calgary Economic Development launched the Soul of the City speaker series in September 2012 to bring Calgarians together to have this discussion and showcase Calgary’s soul. With a diverse group of presenters and venues, the speaker series covers topics such as sustainability, community-minded commerce, urban design, art, food, creativity, education and diversity.
