#Daring Youth: We Dare You To…

This fun and collaborative session is for young people (youth, students, early-career professionals) who want to imagine daring visions of future cities. These “daring visions” will be written in a collaborative short-story format to push the boundaries of the ICLEI 5 development pathways, and form part of a #DaringYouth Statement: a collective vision of city futures to guide and inspire the urban leaders taking on the climate emergency. Participants will be asked to write a short-story about the future addressing one significant sustainability problem faced by their city.
