This annual symposium is organized entirely by students from the School of Community and Regional Planning at UBC. From Contours and Coastlines: (De) Constructing the Pacific Northwest in 2015 to Generation(s) in 2016, this coming symposium invites experts in planning and related fields to present their work and ideas under the theme of Audacity.
Audacity is about bold, daring ideas to inspire future planning initiatives. Attendees should prepare to be inspired as this symposium refuses to accept the status quo and does not shy away from bold ideas.
