Let's make cities youthful
We are on a mission to make cities across Canada and the world more youthful.
Youthful cities embody the qualities of youthfulness. They are connected, dynamic, open, curious, inventive and playful.
Youth are a driving force in cities. To attract and retain youth, cities need to engage and prioritize the attributes of a city most important to youth.
