    The Next Urban Planet: Rethinking the City in Time
  •  
  • Climate change, uneven patterns in the post-industrial economy, and global flows of people, ideas, and capital are reshaping the demographic, social, economic and physical terrains of Metro Vancouver. In a world that is increasingly hot, uneven and connected, these trends drive new and aggravate old challenges for the field of urban planning in the region. At the same time, old solutions may not be adequate for new problems. This talk will examine how these challenges have manifested themselves in time and space in Metro Vancouver with a specific reference to the areas of housing and real estate. Ultimately, connections between people, place and history become critical relationships to document, understand and share for informed public policy and discourse.
