APWA Shares Its Experience at Future City Competition 2018 - Illinois

CHICAGO– American Public Works Administration (APWA) Chicago Metro Chapter shares its great experience at the Future City 2018 Illinois Competition. We appreciate your continued support – fifteen years strong. Great video! 

This year’s theme was The Age-Friendly City. Future City asked middle school students to respond to and address the challenges in designing innovative solutions that can serve an urban area’s older population. Students were tasked with identifying age-related issues in their city planning and engineering a framework that enables seniors to remain active and independent.
