8 80 Cities 2017 Yearbook

At 8 80 Cities, we don’t do boring. 2017 was the year we more than lived up to that! We celebrated our 11th year of working on creating cities for all, a fantastic milestone that we are so proud to have achieved.

Our mission has always been the same- to improve the quality of life for all people living in cities no matter their age, ability, or socioeconomic status. In 2017 we continued to challenge entrenched ways of thinking about car-centric planning, conventional civic engagement and declining investments in parks and public space in cities.

We worked as instigator and convenor; providing ideas for the transformation of public space, bringing diverse partners together to act on those ideas, and working alongside city government and community partners to get things done.

This year we not only moved to a beautiful new office, but we also launched our new and improved website, delivered six unconventional engagement projects, three open streets projects, and eight special projects. We hosted three study tours and presented at nine conferences. We worked with 61 partners and clients in 15 cities across the world.

We are pleased to showcase some of this work from our fabulous 8 80 Team in our Annual 8 80 Yearbook.
