Imagining My Sustainable
Community in action
Imagining My Sustainable City has evolved into Imagining My Sustainable Community. This shift allows the program to expand its focus and be more inclusive. It provides the opportunity to engage youth in the discussion around Northern and Indigenous communities and takes into account many different ways of living. By using the word community, youth from urban, rural or northern communities can see themselves in this program.
One of our success stories comes from Hamilton, Ontario, where Imagining My Sustainable Community is already at work. We are currently building on students’ ideas by creating architectural drawings and display boards along with a master plan that the school can use for fundraising.
Taking the Imagining My Sustainable Community program one step further, we have priced and rendered the students creations so that they can launch crowd funding campaigns to raise the funds to realize their designs as an integral part of the school community.
