From Engagement to Impact
The CityStudio Ottawa model works through a project cycle where citizens come together to collaborate on projects and co-create solutions:
Convene municipal staff to brainstorm opportunities for collaboration.
Match opportunities with courses and form partnerships between faculty and staff.
Students design projects with support from CityStudio, faculty and staff partners
Students test their projects in the community and present their final projects.
Share all student work with staff partners and celebrate top projects with the community.
To work together for a more inclusive, sustainable, and healthier city.
To inspire, connect and mobilize students, faculty, the city, and community members to collaborate on action to build a thriving Ottawa.
The priorities of Ottawa's Community Safety and Well-Being Plan.
CityStudio Ottawa finds creative solutions to Ottawa's priority challenges by co-creating with our community. We're guided by Ottawa's Community Safety and Well-Being Plan which outlines how the City will work with community partners to improve the safety, health and well-being of Ottawa residents.
