My Vital City engages our students in the big challenge of designing and promoting sustainable, livable, resilient cities. Students receive cutting-edge and standards-aligned instruction on the topic of sustainable urbanism through digital lesson plans and curriculum. They apply what they learn by exploring their own neighborhood to capture data on mobile devices on the current development practices and potential sustainability issues. They use their findings to propose strategies to create more environmentally-friendly, self-sufficient, and community-focused places to live, work and play. The ideas they generate are shared as short videos with their school, their community, and with a global audience. The most promising and creative are recognized and rewarded.
