For the past two years, Evergreen has released an annual Mid-Sized Cities Research Series – a compendium of short research pieces that highlight important conversations happening in mid-sized cities across the country. Check out Research Series 2017 and Research Series 2018

This year, we want to hear from both researchers and practitioners, and are looking for submissions from:

  1. Researchers focused on mid-sized cities
  2. Organizations, community groups, committees, non-profits, private sector staff, or individuals who have led urban innovation in their mid-sized city and want to share their story
  3. People leading initiatives that should be documented and shared, but don’t have the capacity to do it themselves. You can nominate your own initiative or an initiative you greatly admire.

Evergreen will work with chosen initiatives to profile their work.

The deadline to submit your application is Friday, September 28, 2018

Research piece

Successful applicants will work closely with Evergreen’s editorial and design team to ensure that their research piece is published as a concise, useful and accessible resource for civic, public and private sector practitioners in mid-sized cities. We are looking for papers between 3,000 and 5,000 words that contribute to the dialogue on sustainable and inclusive city-building in Canada’s mid-sized cities. We will provide a guiding template to help craft the discussion paper. Evergreen does not own your research, but may use it to generate monthly features, blog posts or other editorial content. We welcome your contributions and the chance to work with you!
