Cities for People is a group of action-oriented decision makers and innovators representing a variety of perspectives working to improve Canada’s urban environments. The initiative seeks to better cities by exploring issues relating to the natural and built environment, new economies, civic engagement and art in society.
The forum will explore what a movement dedicated to improving the livability and resiliency of Canadian cities could look like. And—perhaps most importantly—what is needed to move these ideas and visions into action.
One of the forum’s objectives is to engage the local community of city builders, connecting them to innovative projects and inspiring action. On November 12, a free public Keynote Address will launch this exciting and important event, featuring presentations and a discussion with internationally-renowned thinkers Jan Gehl and Sasha Issenberg. Together they will explore how we can better design cities for people, and how we can empower people to take action towards accomplishing this goal.
