CanU 2023 Calgary: Convergence

Urbanism at the Convergence of Resiliency and Diversity

The upcoming Calgary Forum will explore the idea of the Convergence of resiliency and diversity matters shaping the growth of our cities and communities.  The 3-day forum will bring experts from the public and private sectors, first nations, and minority groups to the table to discuss how diversity and inclusion (to include affordable housing) converges with the need to address climate change.  Some of the questions being explored include:​

  • How we deliver on sustainable, net zero environments while delivering affordable housing? Are they mutually exclusive? Can we bridge the gap?

  • In addressing climate change do we mitigate versus adapt?  What are the implications?
