Co-hosted by 8 80 Cities, this Civic Commons Learning Journey offered participants the opportunity to experience public places and neighborhoods in Toronto that bring civic engagement and socioeconomic mixing to life. As network members explored the city by foot, bike and bus, they participated in frank conversations with local leaders on the work they are pursuing, what works and what doesn’t. Stops included Dufferin Grove Park, Scadding Court Community Centre, Regent Park, Thorncliffe Park, The Bentway, Fort York Library, Sidewalk Toronto and Evergreen Brick Works.
