Students discussing prototype

Why are we celebrating?

High school students from all over the GTA spent 5 days with Urban Minds to design and build solutions to two challenges:

"How might we create a better experience for dog owners at St. Andrew’s Playground?"

"How might we create a better environment for students to study in nature?"

Find out how they answered these questions on August 19 at our summer picnic party!


Who is this event for?

Everyone! And dogs!

Our summer pilot project trains high school students to be the next generation leaders in citybuilding, because we believe youth are the untapped force of change in our cities.

We are preparing students to start their own local public space projects in the fall! Learn more about our initiative.
