Wintermission Competition Accepting Applications to Help Improve Public Life in Winter

Nov 15, 2018

8-80 Cities is accepting proposals for Wintermission project partners in three U.S. cities. The organization will support these partners to become national leaders in winter city planning, design, and programming. These cities will become Winter City Vanguards, and work with 8-80 Cities and other partners to:

1. Lead a city-wide conversation about public life and social isolation in winter
2. Implement winter city pilot projects
3. Develop a unique winter city strategy

8-80 Cities encourage applications from teams of community leaders that are committed to making their city a vibrant, connected, and accessible place to live in winter.

Winter City Vanguard teams will receive:

  • Technical assistance to implement winter-based pilot projects and develop a Winter City Strategy
  • Up to $15,000 to cover material expenses to implement pilot projects
  • An all-expenses-paid trip for three team members to attend the Winter Cities Shake Up conference in Saskatoon, SK on January 23-26, 2019
  • Ongoing capacity-building and mentorship opportunities from global leaders in winter city building

Apply here by the deadline: November 29, 2018, at 23:59 pm EST
