Upcoming Summit Highlights
Design Charette: Designing for People
Join Canadian urbanists and some of Edmonton’s urban designers and planners for an interactive design charette. Participants will learn more about a specific downtown area and undertake design reviews to share ideas. Share your ideas on designing a place for people, and learn from other leading city-makers from around the country.
Mobile Tours: Walking the Talk
What do places for people look and feel like in Edmonton? What better way to find out than to see some of these places firsthand! Leave the summit room and join us on a number of walking tours to various locations around the city’s core. From exploring urban history to confronting contemporary city building challenges, experience the city up-close and first hand.
Media Panel: Urbanism Stories
What better way to meet the city and start a new conversation than through the eyes of the media. Join some of Edmonton’s and Canada’s finest for a candid discussion about the role of media and communications professionals in city making. We’ll create a space to reflect on the stories we are told, the stories we tell ourselves and the interconnected ways in which our collective narratives both shape and are shaped by our communities.
Architect Panel: Giants of Design
In collaboration with the CanU leadership, three design greats will share their thoughts, ideas, practices and approaches to building great places for people. Engaging and interactive discussion opportunities will include special features by Peter Busby, Claude Cormier and Renee Daoust.
