On 11 March 2016, Abbas Ali, Robert Tran, and Rebecca Roach of UTSC’s City Studies program took centre stage to win first place at CivicSpark’s “Building up the 6ix” competition.
CivicSpark is a platform working to empower youth to engage with regional issues in the Greater Toronto Area. The platform organized UofT’s very first undergraduate public policy case competition, “Building up the 6ix”, which gathered students to tackle some of Toronto’s challenges. Five teams were given 30 minutes to prepare and ten minutes to present ideas on revitalizing space under the Gardiner Expressway.
