INSPIRATION: What ideas, projects or movements have you seen that make you hopeful about the future of our cities?

VISION: In what ways should we design our cities differently in order to have a sustainable future?

By taking inspiration from other countries, Canada can really step up its game by using innovative and creative approaches to achieve a more sustainable future. For example, using solar panel built roads, in which the tires generate electricity by the friction between the rubber and the panels, is an option.

ACTION: What can your generation do now to bring us closer to this future?

  1. Raise awareness!
  2. Take action by participating in local or global events
  3. Encourage family and friends to participate as well
  4. Set up community challenges (such as this one) to encourage and motivate individuals to help
  5. Educate ourselves so we can implement our learnings towards a better future
