07 Feb 8 80 Cities 2018 Yearbook
At 8 80 Cities, we don’t stagnate. We’re always looking for new and improved ways to further our mission and support the creation of healthier and more vibrant cities for all.
2018 has been a year of transformation and growth. This year marks our 12th year bringing people together to transform mobility and public space to improve the quality of life for people of all ages, abilities, socioeconomic conditions and ethnocultural backgrounds. Reflecting on our journey, we’re proud of how we’ve grown.
In the last 12 years we’ve learned a lot as a team, and from the communities and partners we work with. We’ve made memories and met project milestones that pushed ourselves as professionals and strengthened our commitment to our mission.
This year we’ve made great traction in challenging cities and communities with the simple question that inspires us every day: What if everything we did in our cities was great for an 8 year old and an 80 year old? 2018 marked a year with the most diverse partnerships to date. Our collaborative muscles have gotten stronger working with other nonprofit organizations, community-based organizations, universities, municipalities, private sector firms, volunteers, and foundations. We feel we’ve pushed the needle on the possibilities of what community-driven city building can accomplish.
But don’t just take it from us! The proof is in the pudding, or in this case, the projects. That is why we are so pleased to share the highlights from a great year with our amazing 8 80 team in our annual 8 80 Yearbook.
