SCARP 10th Annual Planning Student Symposium

SCARP 10th Annual Planning Student Symposium

The School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP) Annual Planning Student Symposium is celebrating its 10th anniversary with the theme, Encompass: Broadening the Scope of Planning.

Encompass is about embracing unexpected connections and taking planning into new directions. At this year’s symposium, we gather inspiration from diverse sources, and find fresh ideas by looking within and beyond the traditional boundaries of planning practices. We hope that participants will come prepared to challenge assumptions, connect innovative ideas, and broaden their scope of planning.

We are excited to announce three keynote speakers:

  • Lisa Helps, Mayor of the City of Victoria
  • Jacob A. Wagner, AICP
  • Kwes’ Kwestin Jim Kew, Musqueam First Nation elder

and 10 thought-provoking panels:

  • 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
