New Video: Emerging City Champions 2016

Summer is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy great weather and sunlight. For us, at 8 80 Cities, summer is a very busy but fun time of the year where we focus part of our creativity, energies, hard work and great ideas to host the Emerging City Champions fellowship program, funded by the Knight Foundation.

For the second year in a row  we brought 20 amazing, enthusiastic, fun and energetic young leaders from 20 cities in the U.S. to Toronto to participate in theECC program, which is designed to empower new, diverse civic innovators so they can enhance civic engagement, improve mobility, and activate public life in public spaces in their own communities.


In this great video, you will get to know the Champions, as well as their ideas and projects. You will also understand why we are so thrilled to have had them in this year’s cohort.
