Product Details

CanU 2020 is not only going online, it’s changing the way we engage with our membership and the many city-builders we work with across Canada. This year we’re getting creative, offering attendees the chance to celebrate Canadian urbanism and to collaborate in exploring how we can build cities to support more resilient communities through Urban Design. In place of our usual gathering, we’ve organized a Series of events. It starts with four Conversations on equitable access to city services and benefits, building momentum up to the three Forum events in late October. To contribute to this critical dialogue, we’ve invited exceptional hosts and guest urbanists from across Canada and abroad. Through interactive platforms you’ll also have the chance to be part of informal discussions with guest speakers and your colleagues as the Series progresses.
