Smart Canada is a Smart City Project which will challenge urbanites to rethink many aspects of city-life in unique and useful ways. The initiative starts from reclaiming neglected urban spaces and make them usable again to addressing urban problems like noise pollution. They also want to provide a platform to share ideas that will contribute to make our cities more enjoyable to live in.
The Smart City Project from Smart Canada will consist of many different small projects that will combine to improve urban environment. So one of them is this alleyway beautification project. Other projects are for example prominent transit shelter displays and wild postings that are meant to engage citizens and urge them to share ideas about how to make their city life better.Ideas can be shared on the website of the Smart City
Project http://www.thesmartcityproject.ca/. This hub will also highlight the numerous different projects and it will be updated with videos, photos and comments.
