Cities Fit For Children: Call for Poster Presentations

Kamloops, B.C. - Kamloops is hosting the 3rd Cities Fit for Children Provincial Summit on May 10th - 11th, 2012 at Thompson Rivers University. The goal of this summit is to emphasize the role of local partnerships, strategies and successes, including business engagement strategies, which contribute to liveable and healthy cities for children and youth.

This event will bring together local, municipal and regional leaders involved in policy decisions to help design and build healthy safe communities for children and their families. The 2012 summit is anticipated to attract approximately 300 delegates from across the province, providing them with the opportunity to network and learn about how leaders at any level can make a difference in creating sustainable communities.

The City is currently accepting applications for poster presentations for display during this summit. These posters should be a visual presentation of a community project or initiative that clearly conveys one of the themes of the conference. The deadline for applications is March 15th, 2012.
