This looks to be of interest for friends of public space and urban planning. Our good friends at UBC’s School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP) have announced their ninth annual symposium, upcoming on Friday, March 3, 2017. The day-long event is titled Audacity and brings together professionals, academics and students for a full day of discussion on planning issues.

Audacity is about inspiring future planning initiatives, taking a stance against the status quo and demanding a push for new and daring ideas, innovations and actions.

Keynote speakers
