The tour of False Creek South will explore the community vision, planning, urban design, development and current issues shaping the future of this historic area.

Forum on Environmental Assessment for Urban Development
October 19, 2016 - 9:00am - 3:00pm
Simon Fraser University at Harbour Centre
515 West Hastings Street
Vancouver
BC

Urban development in the Lower Mainland often requires some level of environmental assessment (EA) to meet federal, provincial or local government requirements. Urban EAs are often triggered for projects that involve watercourse setbacks, instream works or other environmental sensitivities. The scope and process vary between jurisdictions but some common EA triggers, tools and methods are emerging.

Join us to hear speakers from diverse organizations discuss the challenges and solutions for urban environmental planning and impact assessment.

Cost: $75 - $130

What is 21st-Century Urbanism?

 

Urban design thinking has always evolved in response to social needs—gateways to welcome Sumerian gods to cities, grids to march Roman armies around fortified settlements (and centuries later to sell colonial real estate), and squares to enable Renaissance elites to gather.

Today’s urbanism focuses on opportunities such as creating walkable neighborhoods, mixing uses to expand lifestyle choices, and shaping animated places that help communities meet the needs and aspirations of our age.

Twenty years ago, geographer David Harvey described London’s redeveloped Docklands as a “landing strip for capital” from investors around the world. Today, Vancouver has joined London, New York, Sydney and other nodes of a world network of “Hedge Cities”—places to buy real estate to store capital as insurance against an uncertain future. How are cities and public policy reshaped by a world of transnational investment?

Addressing our toughest challenges—such as climate change, housing affordability, inequality or xenophobia—requires broad public will and action. Yet, these challenges are also rooted in far-reaching and complex systems that include many different institutions and networks. To bring about the changes we need, we have to understand and work with both systems and democratic publics.
