Creating vibrant and sustainable communities involves visionary planning and innovative design. How do we design communities to be more sustainable? How do we make urban environments more integrated and liveable? How do we innovate building design, transit and land use to reduce our impact on the environment?
“Vibrant Sustainable Communities: Towards a Smart Future”, a panel hosted by UBC Campus and Community Planning will focus on how to create sustainable, liveable urban communities. The panel will bring together distinguished UBC alumni: Mike Harcourt, BA’65, LLB’68, LLD’07, the former Mayor of Vancouver and Premier of British Columbia; Lisa Colby, BLA’89, MAP’90, Associate Director, Policy Planning, UBC Campus and Community Planning; and Dr. Freda Pagani, PhD’99, founding director of UBC’s Sustainability Office.
Moderated by Maged Senbel, MScP’99, PhD’05, Assistant Professor, UBC School of Community and Regional Planning, this dialogue will explore the best practices in urban planning and building design. There will also be an opportunity to learn about how UTown@UBC, UBC’s vision for an integrated community, is transforming a commuter campus into a sustainable place where people live, work and learn together.
