I have become immensely interested in how cities see themselves.
The first step is determining who is city? Perhaps a great place to start is to begin with youth. How do they see, experience and conceptualize their city? If London, Ontario, for example, could see itself as young adults see it, what would the city see?
I am looking to find out answers to this question: stay tuned.

James is a local thinker, writer, researcher, podcaster and host of London’s Wolf Hall Debates. In other words, James is one of the people in our city who helps make London a vibrant, thoughtful community. You can catch the conversation here as well as check out his excellent website which is filled with other thoughtful content:
