As part of the year-long Cody Rouge & Warrendale Youth-Centric Neighborhood Framework, 21 teenagers from the area worked for six weeks to learn about their city and the neighborhood. To share what they have learned, they have planned & produced the “Detroit Youth Urbanism Summit 2019 Taking Us Back,” an event to bring together young people from the neighborhood and others interested in our city and the well-being of youth. “Taking Us Back” will be an evening of youth-led events including performances, group activities, and more.
