Change agents is a collection of people and ideas that have pushed the Imaginando Lota project. Inspired by our People Change Places vision, this video aims to express the challenges facing the urban city and how collective action can make lasting change in a community. This is how we changed a place and how ultimately how a place changed us.
Lota is mysterious and friendly, timeless and vibrant, tragic and hopeful. There is enormous potential in Lota to both enhance existing assets and build on opportunities to create a resilient city. The team has prepared a revitalization plan to help catalyze this potential. Over the course of these eight months, the team came to love Lota and its people and is humbled to have had the opportunity to help shape its future.
After just 4 days, the designs were thorough, imaginative and practical. A panel made up of representatives from each of the 3 international schools as well as the IWB / George Brown College evaluated all the final designs in a day-long presentation session. The top three designs were awarded badges of recognition and the judges had positive comments on each of the projects that were presented.
