Webinar: Planning for Urban Resilience and Inclusive Cities: Lessons from Toronto

June 12, 2018
9:00 CDT in Chicago
10:00 EDT in Toronto, New York

16:00 CEST in Berlin, Barcelona

Why do diversity, inclusion, and resilience matter to cities? Diversity is often celebrated in city branding and promotion. Toronto’s city motto “Diversity Our Strength” conveys social, cultural, and political meanings, but what does successful (and unsuccessful) spatial and physical manifestations of diversity in our city landscapes actually look like? From affordable housing, to transit, to parks, to settlement services, our cities can make smart investments of the public realm to create equitable and inclusive infrastructure and culturally sensitive services.

On June 12, join us online with Dr. Zhixi Zhuang, School of Urban and Regional Planning, Ryerson University (Toronto) in conversation with Dr. Stacy Harwood, Department of Urban & Regional Planning, University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign) to discuss planning for urban resilience in a multicultural context, and how municipal planning policies can create safe, accessible, and inclusive public spaces while promoting intercultural social interactions and understanding.

This webinar is produced in partnership with Ryerson Centre for Immigration and Settlement (RCIS)
