    Growing Up in Cities Canada

    Focuses on the importance of engaging young people in creating child and youth friendly communities and including them in the decision-making process. In Halifax, skateboarders have created a connection with the municipality and are designing a safe place to skateboard. In Gatineau, young people are creating a café-bistro through a co-operative process that will be managed and run by the young people. In Vancouver, supports for queer and immigrant children and youth are being created by young people in that community.
