Calgary’s younger residents think the city is a pretty good place to live, a report released this week reveals.
The report, titled Youth Vital Signs, provides a snapshot of what 12- to 20-year-olds think about Calgary.
The young adults gave a "B" grade on overall quality of life in Calgary.
Ros Doi, initiatives manager with not-for-profit group Youth Central, says the report also offers suggestions on how to make changes.
"There's always three things you can do for each key issue area and take a look at those and be able to make a change in your community instead of just reading the grades," Doi said. "Take the opportunity to do something about it."
Issues like health and safety and arts and culture received "B-" grades.
The city scored only a "C+" on employment and training.
The respondents also said there needs to be a lot more places for youth activities, particularly in the suburbs.
