Its message is simple: instead of waiting for someone else to solve our city’s problems, it is up to each of us to step up and build a better city.
This is done through an “urban intervention”: an activation of your idea that aims to make our community a better place. Interventions take the form of events, activities, projects or pop-ups. They can be practical: planting community gardens, or cleaning up a park. They can be social: a neighbourhood picnic, or a community dance. They can challenge us, aim to serve underprivileged communities, or bring awareness to social issues. They can be as big or as small as you want them to be.
The common thread? They are always citizen-run and citizen-driven. They rely on your creativity and your vision for your city. And when these actions all happen on the same day, in a festival of civic pride and engagement, we can transform our city.
