Robert Barnard

Co-Founder & President

I’ve spent 25+ years working with youth on cool projects all around the world. I’m the founder of three companies and one charity. I’m a clothing designer, author, speaker, and driver (since no one else has a drivers license in the office).

Favourite city: London. I lived there for almost three years. I love Toronto too, but maybe it’s just too familiar.

My youthful value: Diversity. I am a variety junkie – from music to food to film to culture.

Favourite snack food: Brownies. Duh!

My role at Youthful Cities: Driver, half baked visionary, cinema seat index indicator collector, official word of the day supplier.
