Transforming cities, empowering students: collaborating for a sustainable and inclusive greater Montreal

The downtown campus of Concordia University

We tackle urban issues

We connect Concordia students and city representatives, through faculty members, by integrating an experiential learning experience in the form of a question to be answered.

How can we make active transportation more attractive?

How can the city embed climate change mitigation across its operations?

These are two examples, but there are as many questions to be answered as there are challenges in our communities.

That's why City School taps into university students as a resource to solve urban issues in Greater Montreal. We call them to think outside the box and develop innovative and sustainable solutions, in the form of hands-on research, internships, project work and other educational practices. 

Students apply what they learn in the classroom to a current and local challenge. We customize our matches to align with course needs and learning objectives.

Collaborate with City School

Submit a problem or question specific enough that a solution or answer will be recognizable. Tackling your problem or question should also require a multidisciplinary approach and a degree of sophistication.
