www.scarpsymposium.ca  We would like to invite you to join us for the School of Community and Regional Planning’s 7th Annual Symposium at the University of British Columbia. On February 27, 2015 the students of the School will be hosting colleagues, professionals and academic guests for Contours and Coastlines: Deconstructing the Pacific Northwest. Our goal is to connect social and economic currents with the legal and physical outcomes: what forces shape the Pacific Northwest and how do these play out across political boundaries as large as nations and as small as property lines?  We hope the event will contribute to a larger discussion on sustainability and question popular visions of our region as an environmental paradise. From evolving trends in indigenous politics and transportation needs, to established issues of climate adaptation and housing affordability, this year’s conference will convene discussions and examine solutions for these challenges facing our region.
