Cities around the world will need to spend trillions of dollars in the next decade in response to the complex demands of population, energy, resource depletion and climate change. Our students want to help change the world AND they want to earn a living. As the key project within Vancouver's Campus City Collaborative (C3) CityStudio Vancouver is an energetic hub of learning and leadership where students design and implement Vancouver's Greenest City goals.
CityStudio is a collaboration of the City of Vancouver and 6 colleges and universities to engage students in the following ways:
1. Greenest City Solutions. CityStudio directly involves students in designing solutions for Vancouver's Greenest City 2020 goals
2. Student Leadership towards a Green Economy. Course work emphasizes mentoring and training for emerging sustainability leaders to identify and develop opportunities in the green economy.
3. Energetic Hub of Learning. In year one, CityStudio involved over 480 students and 18 instructors contributing over 20,000 hours of action learning towards the Greenest City Goals.
