What is CityStudio? As an initiative within Vancouver’s Campus City Collaborative (C3), CityStudio Vancouver, CityStudio is an energetic hub of learning and leadership where post-secondary students work with City staff, community and business experts to research, design and implement projects that work towards the achievement of Vancouver’s Greenest City 2020 Action Plan. In addition to this core studio course, 12 partner courses from the 6 campuses will simultaneously engage the theme, share research and work, and participate in events. http://www.citystudiovancouver.com
