What are the essential steps Canadian cities must take to become more equitable, liveable and sustainable post-pandemic?

BOLD IDEAS FOR RESILIENT CITY DESIGN

CanU 2020    Vancouver  

STEP UP

CanU take action? You are invited to be part of our STEP UP Series, a new model for inspiring cities to achieve resilience through urban design. The first part kicks off with conversations (one in September and three in October) that will give you a voice in this critical national dialogue. You will engage with notable urbanists to explore equitable access to the benefits of a complete community. These conversations build the foundation for the second part, the STEP UP Forum, where we will explore how the bold ideas raised in these conversations can be turned into bold steps towards a resilient city. Our goal is to collectivity create a valuable tool for cities across the country, including those like Vancouver that are advancing city-wide plans. 

To achieve this new model for city-building discourse and action, CanU has collaborated with three recognized city-building advocates from the Vancouver region: University of British Columbia, MODUS and Urbanarium.
