CityStudio Theory of Change


If we build trust-based relationships between students, city staff, faculty and community.


We can more easily co-create projects that advance specific city goals.


This will inspire action and students to be more engaged citizens.


Which will ultimately as the power to shift culture inside City Hall and higher education. 


This momentum, in turn, contributes to the global movement aiming to make our cities more sustainable, joyful, equitable and inclusive.
