Calgary Centre for Global Community provides education, engagement and research opportunities to enhance and expand Calgarians' capacity for responsible, well-informed, effective global citizenship. Our work recognizes the interconnectedness of local and global issues and their impact on the well-being of our communities.
We also act as the umbrella organization for Humainologie, an international, multi-media production house, and The Code, a Calgary-based social enterprise initiative launching later in 2016.

Supported by the Calgary Centre for Global Community (CCGC), Humainologie is a production house whose work directly contributes to CCGC’s mission of inspiring and enabling effective global citizenship. We believe that the more we truly connect with ourselves and with others, the more we will naturally create a more humane global community.
"Humain" in French means both "human" and "humane". Humainologie recognizes the possibility of embracing both the opportunity to become more humane as a society, and the opportunity to recognize and accept our own and others' imperfect humanness. Somewhere between or within the two, is where we think there's an opening.

The Spaces Between Us
‘‘There isn’t anyone you couldn’t love once you’ve heard their story’
- Mary Lou Kownacki
Our recent exhibit 'under an umbrella we met', featuring eight short films where you can step into the actual, worn shoes of the person you are watching, launched on November 19, 2015 at Cannibale and then showed at Calgary City Hall in December, 2015. The exhibit is now currently touring different locations. Find out more about the films and the exhibit at www.underanumbrellawemet.com
