To organize 30Network Vancouver on Housing and Affordability, YouthfulCities partnered with Vancouver-based organization CityHive. CityHive is on a mission to transform the way that youth are engaged in civic processes, planning and decision-making in Vancouver. 


Together, CityHive & Youthful Cities co-hosted Vancouver's 30Network: Housing & Affordability, a pop-up think & do tank of the top 30 young urban influencers under 30. There has been talk about young people being affected by unaffordability of housing, but not as much talk with or by young people. The 30Network took this conversation one step further. Over four sessions, these 30 influencers co-created innovative solutions to housing and affordability challenges in Vancouver, in collaboration with key partners in the city. We would like to thank all of our partners, without whose support the 30Network YVR would not be possible.
