CO-DESIGNING THE ACTIVE CITY: 12 COMMUNITIES IN ACTION.

Our 12 projects pilot projects show great variety in their location, process, and results. We have worked in rural, suburban, and urban contexts across three provinces, and have engaged a wide range of stakeholders, partners, and community members. Each project met successes and challenges, but we have learned many lessons and best practices from our on-the-ground collaborations!
