Spacing Vancouver has featured a story on the inception of the CityStudio program and how they contribute to the city of Vancouver's Greenest City 2020 sustainability goals, while giving students hands-on experience.

Each semester, interested professors apply to become partners, “pointing” their course content and assignments at the same Greenest City Goal.

The result is over two hundred students per semester working on projects in areas as diverse as architecture, business, performing arts, and applied science.
