PHOTOS: Launch Party for ‘Local Motion – The Art of Civic Engagement in Toronto’

Despite the seriously foul weather that hit Toronto last night, it was a full house at the Lula Lounge for the ‘Election Hangover Party’ that launched the final book in the Coach House Press uTOpia series.

Local Motion – The Art of Civic Engagement in Toronto, presents an in-depth analysis of civic engagement in Canada’s largest city. Decisions about the things that matter most on a daily basis happen at the city level. So, how do we influence these decisions? What motivates ordinary citizens to take action and improve their community? How do neighbours organize together? Does City Hall facilitate engagement, or stand in the way? Local Motion explores how we, as citizens, can make a positive change in our city.”
