The Grove Community School in Toronto, Ontario, Canada participated in a Jane's Walk School Edition. Teachers and parents gave the students clipboards and plastic black glasses to imitate and amplify Jane Jacobs' most celebrated contributions to cities - her writings and her observations.
While on their Jane's Walk, the students were asked guiding questions to engage their senses about their neighborhood: Where do you like to walk in the neighbourhood? Is there enough room for us on the sidewalk? Who uses this park? Where do bikes get parked? This charming stroll shows that youth can be active members of their communities just by looking and taking notice. Read more about the event here.
