Opportunity to learn more about  the "15 minute city, where people can access what they need by foot, bike or transit". Share insights on this concept and other planning paradigms which have influenced Canadian cities.

Together we will consider how communities have been shaped by various influences and explore how these planning approaches hold up during the pandemic. There will be facilitated discussion on how affordable 15 minute neighborhoods might help tackle both the climate and housing crisis facing cities all over the country. 

Presented by:
