Edmonton Youth City Builders

Meet our Edmonton cohort

Future City Builders is an immersive Evergreen initiative for youth aged 18-29 to effect positive change in their communities. Through Evergreen’s new Virtual Design Thinking labs, networking opportunities, workshops, and mentorship, youth are prepared to take action within their communities. At the same time, they are building job-ready skills, increasing their professional networks and gaining important work-related experience that will serve them well into their careers.  

In its second year, Future City Builders is focusing on Healthy Cities, equipping youth to lead innovative solutions that address the systemic barriers facing Canadian communities. 

Future City Builders is funded by RBC Foundation in support of RBC Future Launch. The Future City Builders program is an initiative of Future Cities Canada, a national collaborative platform accelerating innovation to transform cities.

After months of brainstorming, planning, discussions and workshops, the youth city builders presented their innovative concepts for creating a healthy Edmonton.
