Did you participate in a We Are Cities roundtable or contribute to the online discussion forum last year?
The teams at Evergreen CityWorks and the Montreal Urban Ecology Centre have distilled the hundreds of fantastic ideas brought forth, identifying commonalities and areas that are primed for local and national action. Click here to download the We Are Cities Action Agenda: a collective expression of the kinds of cities we, as Canadians, want.
Excerpt from the Introduction:
“This Agenda offers a starting point for further conversation and emphasizes that we all have a role to play in creating the places we want to live. The Agenda is intended to inspire and catalyze action—locally and nationally—and builds on efforts already underway across the country.
First Nations, Métis and Inuit play a pivotal role in the ongoing development of our country. The We Are Cities Action Agenda respectfully acknowledges the traditional territories of Canada’s Aboriginal people and their stewardship of the land upon which our cities and country have been built. In order for our cities to thrive, our Aboriginal communities must also thrive.”
