Have you heard!? We are in search of resilience. We (Kelly Davies and Steph Koenig) are incredibly excited to be named the Vancouver City Leads for the Future City Builders Program, a collaborative project between YouthfulCities and Evergreen, championed by RBC Future Launch and an initiative by Future Cities Canada. To begin this project, we have identified some of Vancouvers strengths and challenges. Join us as we challenge Vancouver’s weaknesses and build off its strengths.
Active cycling population
General interest in sustainability initiatives
Access to public parks
Rich non-profit sector
Predicted mega thrust earthquake
Lack of affordable housing
Marine oil spills
Sea level rise
