10th Annual SCARP Symposium - Encompass

Broadening the Scope of Planning

Encompass is about embracing unexpected connections and taking planning in new directions. At the 10th annual SCARP Symposium we gather inspiration from diverse sources, finding fresh ideas by looking within – and beyond – the traditional boundaries of planning. Come prepared to challenge assumptions, connect innovative ideas, and broaden your scope of planning.

Hear from keynote speakers Lisa Helps, City of Victoria Mayor, and Jacob A. Wagner, Director of the Urban Studies Program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City

Our panels will be offered in three sessions throughout the day.  This year’s selected sessions offer a wide range of topics:

  • The First Schools of Planning: Indigenous urban planning and reconciliation in cities
  • Reflecting on Multicultural Connections: Planning an inclusive city with newcomers
  • Intersectional Planning: What does it mean to put an intersectional lens to planning?
  • City Cycling: Exploring issues of equity in transportation
  • Learning from Mars: A roundtable discussion on (de)-colonization, the ‘turn-key’ project and planning futures
  • Deconstructing Urban Displacement: Global forces, local implications, and community-driven solutions from the Hogan’s Alley Society
  • Resilience Planning for the Social Implications of Climate Change
  • New Directions in Affordable Housing
  • Unsettling Environmental Review
PIBC is proud to be a Gold Sponsor for the 10th Annual SCARP Symposium!
