    Tear Down the Open House:

    “Youth-ifying” Engagement


    When was the last time you engaged young people in your projects? Young people are at the front lines of today’s most complex issues from the housing and affordability crisis, climate change, the opioid poisoning crisis, and many overlapping systemic issues. At the same time, youth are frequently left out of decision-making despite being left to live with the consequences the longest.

    Join us for a workshop that explores how our engagement practices can be more inclusive of all ages and how centering youth in our engagements can support us in shaping a better, more resilient, and sustainable future. As award-winning youth engagement specialists, CityHive will be tapping into our years of experience and sharing lessons learned on youth engagement. Participants will walk away with clear examples, tools, and strategies to take back into their own engagement practice.

      Sea2City Design Challenge


      The 2023 IAP2 Canada Core Value- Indigenous Engagement, Project of the Year Recipient and the 2023 IAP2 International Project of the Year


      Join Angela and Amanda in conversation about the Sea2City Design Challenge (Sea2City). In our session we will go over:

      • How decolonization was viewed, supported and the outcomes that emerged.
      • Engagement and communication goals and tactics related to youth and artists.
      • How to intentionally foster internal collaboration and flexibility on team projects.

      Sea2City yielded three key outcomes. First, it successfully decolonized the language of coastal planning, recognizing the interconnectedness of land and water and challenging the colonial approach that treats water as separate. Second, the project generated a positive and bold future vision for the False Creek shoreline, centering Indigenous voices, values, and aspirations alongside community needs. Lastly, it produced implementable site concepts and pilot projects that were refined through public engagement, showcasing novel decolonized ideas that had not been previously considered in a Canadian urban setting.

      The project also offered three significant engagement takeaways. Firstly, the involvement and guidance of Host Nation representatives and cultural advisors were foundational to the project's outcomes, fostering an open and collaborative work environment. Secondly, engaging youth and the arts community was crucial, given the disproportionate impact of climate change on young people. Their inclusion and utilizing art as a platform facilitated accessible discussions on complex adaptation issues. Finally, collaboration and mainstreaming were identified as essential for effective coastal adaptation, emphasizing the need for interdisciplinary collaboration, integrating engagement across City departments, programs, policies, and plans, and involving the public at large.
