On June 7, Toronto will join more than a dozen cities around the world in a global initiative called 100in1Day. 100in1Day began in Bogota, Colombia with 250 projects and 3,000 participants and has since expanded to 15 cities around the world. It is a citizen-driven festival where individuals and groups set up 100s of community projects – called urban interventions – and showcase their ideas for a better city.
Evergreen CityWorks, a national not-for-profit that aims to green cities, and the United Way are organizing Toronto’s 100in1Day. Residents interested in setting up an urban intervention are encouraged to attend a workshop. The first workshop will be held on Tuesday, March 7 from 6-9 p.m. at MaRS Discover District (101 College St). Register by sending an email to 100in1dayTO@gmail.com.
