Description

Synapcity, in partnership with Youth Ottawa, the Young Leaders Advisory Council (YLAC), and the Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW), present ‘What Would it Take for Ottawa to be a Youthful City?’

What is a youthful city? Imagine living in a city that is deeply connected and dynamic. Its citizens are open and curious, and work together across communities. The culture encourages creativity and the infrastructure is playful. It is a society where everyone feels that they belong.

We have been inspired by the work of the 2018 Canadian Youthfulcities Index that ranked Ottawa fourth overall in the first comparable urban index. This data was collected by youth across the country, measuring 121 indicators across 20 youthful infrastructure areas.

Drawing from the research done by Youthful Cities, together we will examine some examples from around the world and some dreams from Ottawa’s youth to identify what might be needed for Ottawa to become a Youthful City.

Registration is FREE, but spaces are limited. Breakfast, coffee/tea is included. Please consider a donation to keep our programs inclusive.

What is "What Would It Take"?

A city is its people. These conversations are an opportunity to meet in a safe space and discuss civic issues that are near and dear to our hearts. Bringing together individuals and organizations from across the city, we explore “What Would It Take” to enhance and amplify the parts of our city that we are already proud of, and how to create more space for happier, healthier, smarter and safer qualities of life for our citizens.

Synapcity connects people who want to have a positive impact in the city, and as a third-party convenor without political agenda, we can offer space and support to other organizations who work tirelessly in this great city and bring in the voices of the city’s people.
