Citizenship in Action

Citizenship in Action (CIA) seeks to engage youth in the community design process as a means to empower and inform the next generation of citizens in Nashville.  As our city grows and changes, citizen engagement and understanding of the built environment will be crucial to the quality of our growth.  CIA programs and resources fall under the following mission:

Our mission is to invest the next generation of informed citizens in how the world is built around them. Nashville youth will develop an understanding of urban design concepts and the impacts that they have on the quality of community. In turn, they will be empowered to use their voice to impact their own community.
