Oshawa’s TeachingCity year-in-review and upcoming projects report now available

The City of Oshawa and its partners are pleased to announce that the TeachingCity 2017-2018 Progress Report is now available online.

The report highlights accomplishments achieved since the signing of a unique TeachingCity partnership on June 5, 2017 to formalize Oshawa as a ‘living laboratory’ in which to study and address complex urban issues.

TeachingCity brings the city together with its education and research partners – Canadian Urban Institute, Durham College, Trent University Durham Greater Toronto Area, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, and the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering.

The report includes details on a Diversity and Inclusion Plan, TeachingCity Hackathon, TeachingCity Hub, and a Community Collaborations course where students from DC’s School of Media, Art & Design designed vinyl artwork in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary for display on the windows of the City’s Arts Resource Centre.

The City’s progress report also provides updates on improving the City’s stormwater quality;
natural asset identification through a partnership with the Municipal Natural Assets Initiative to study the Oshawa Creek; studying both barriers and promoters of active senior transportation; and
launching City Idea Lab, a collaborative, course-based pilot project.
