In the Summer of 2019, my Sustainable Development class (SFU SD499) was given the opportunity to compete amongst eachother with projects, with the prize being an invitation to CityStudio's HUBBUB 13. The project mandate was to innovate ways to better incorporate children and youth into the Greenest City Action Plan.
My my idea was the Family Townhall, a bottom-up approach to participatory planning that aims to be a cultural and intellectual probe, all while engaging families with civic issues, sustainability and more.
The judges - a Vancouver city planner and a representative from CityStudio - chose my project as the winner. I attended HUBBUB 13 later that year.
