News: Cities for People in transition

As you may know, Cities for People is an experimental initiative – one that’s testing out approaches to shaping more livable and resilient cities.  Since January 2014, we have focused on supporting, connecting, and amplifying work in cities across Canada to build on what’s already happening and facilitate new collaborations and ways of working.

As of July 1, 2015, we are wrapping up this first, experimental phase, and moving into a transition period. During this time, we’ll reflect on what has worked well, what needs more exploring, who we should be reaching, and what the next phase of Cities for People might look like. Don’t worry, while our focus will be on regrouping and strategic planning over the summer, we will still be updating the site and blogging periodically: look out for reflections from our cross-Canada network of curators and convenors coming up soon.

One component of our learning and evaluation process is a Cities for People 1.0 Final Report.  This report will share out what we’ve been up to and learned along the way with lots of photos, videos, and stories.  Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter below to be notified when we release the report in fall, 2015.

We encourage you to check back here regularly for Cities for People updates and to find out what we’ll be working on in the fall and beyond.

Thank you for your ongoing interest – and we’ll touch base soon!
