Future City Builders in Vancouver focused its 30Lab on Emergency Preparedness! Ranging from earthquakes to forest fires, being prepared in Vancouver is of utmost importance, but not always a priority for youth in the city. The lab ran from February to April 2019, resulting in six unique community projects for emergencies. The lab consisted of four workshops: Networking, Knowledge Building, Ideation and Project Development. At our pitch-off, the grand prize seed funding was awarded to Pushpin and second place funding awarded to Disaster Games. Explore the experience below.
Future City Builders is presented in partnership by YouthfulCities and Evergreen, championed by RBC Future Launch. The Future City Builder program is an initiative of Future Cities Canada, a national collaborative platform accelerating innovation to transform cities. Many thanks to our venue sponsors, Red Academy, City of Vancouver and SFU Public Square. Thanks to Cupe Local 113 for its seed funding donation.
