100in1Day Burlington is part of a growing global movement of citizen driven change, where people take ownership of their city and together, create a better place to live.
100in1Day Burlington inspires residents to activate 100 innovative, thought-provoking ideas into interventions to transform their city all on one day.
The concept is simple, 100 urban interventions in 1 day. An urban intervention is an activity, project or installation that temporarily improves a public space and demonstrates how a community might achieve more lasting positive change. It may be led by an individual, community-based group, or an organization.
Projects can be practical, like planting trees or pop-up street furniture. They can be social, like hosting a block party. They can be artistic, like flash mobs or yarn bombing. They can challenge us or fix a problem. They can be as big or small as you want. All projects must be safe, legal and inclusive.
Burlington first participated in 100in1Day on June 2, 2018, along with 15 other cities across Canada.
100in1Day Burlington is supported by the City of Burlington, the Burlington Public Library, and Ron Edwards Family YMCA.
