CityLAB was created because we realize that complex challenges need different ways of approaching problems. We think that the best people to lead this change are young people who are given the support and guidance to test their ideas out in the real world. This course will be intense. It will challenge you personally as you learn more about yourself and your place in the world, it will challenge you socially as you navigate working with interdisciplinary teams, city staff members, and members of the broader community, and it will challenge you academically as you stretch beyond the limits of your disciplinary training and gain a deeper understanding of complex issues facing our city. You will learn that problems are not as easily solved as they might appear, that a positive attitude goes a long way, and that real success lies in collaboration.
