“Future Cities, Future Us” is a special climate action project of Urban Minds and 1UP Toronto, in partnership with Evergreen and ENCORE Lab at OISE. Our climate is changing. The City of Toronto recently declared a climate emergency, but this will mean nothing if we don’t change the way we design and build our cities.
This project is designed in hope to build a youth-led, intergenerational exchange of ideas with the goal to create a collective, actionable vision of future cities. The following ideas were submitted by youth to help us build a physical and digital display for the upcoming Future Cities Canada Summit (November 7 and 8) and Community Studio (November 23 and 30) at Evergreen Brick Works. City-building professionals and visitors of all ages will respond to these ideas and help inspire our youth to take real action.
