RedefiningTO

RedefiningTO is a bringing together changemakers who work towards social and environmental development in Toronto in a Design Jam spanning over 2 weeks of integrated online and offline collaboration. The invitation-only design jam will co-create scenarios that will translate into a technical platform showcasing the social, environmental, community, technical and artistic dimensions of what Toronto can look like and become over the immediate and distant future.

The goals of RedefiningTO are two-prong: first, the project aims to showcase the innovative social and environmental change work in Toronto; those people, projects and organizations that are committed to addressing root problems by redefining services and strategies for solutions that will benefit the long-term growth of the community.

Second, it seeks to further civic participation and engagement to add increased value to activities in the city. We need to activate the ability and incentive for people to collaborate, deliberate and take action on problems or issues that they themselves believe are important, and in ways they deem appropriate.
