What’s happening now—designing sustainable, inclusive places to live and thrive
Cities across Canada are trying to reconcile urban design with the needs of residents. From eco sustainability to stunted improvements in transportation and a housing crunch, cities are grappling with how to envision a future that will prove both durable and flexible enough to meet the ever-evolving demands of urban living.
What does it mean to make our cities more sustainable, inclusive places in the long term? How can we shift urban development to make cities safer, more accessible, and overall more resilient? What changes are happening now to make cities better tomorrow?
