civic innovation prize report

In Spring 2016, the Guelph Lab was awarded a $10,000 Cities-for-People Civic Innovation Prize for the Civic Accelerator program. 

We submitted a report to the McConnell Foundation, which administers the prize, to summarize the Sandbox project and its outcomes. Here are some highlights:


There were two projects. One produced valuable learnings about the importance of determining community expectations and why students should be involved earlier in the city's procurement process.


The other produced a social enterprise focused on reducing food waste and showed the students how community engagement can result in effecting real change on the ground. 

The report is here.

Guelph Lab is made possible by the University of Guelph and the City of Guelph
