7-Generation Markham Collaborators, Partners, Advisors


The Legacy Project has brought together a new Group of Seven. They are experienced, respected, big-picture thinkers serving as guides in our 7-Generation work building 7-Generation Cities.

We're facing significant community and global challenges. Let's #ChangeTheStory – the story we have about what it means to be human, our relationships with each other and the planet, and the meaningful long-term impact we can make.

It's time to create a 7-Generation world by exploring important questions, connecting the dots, and co-creating across seven broad themes:
