Join the School of Cities at the University of Toronto and the Urban Studies Program on December 2, 2021 at 6:30 PM for a discussion on the key themes dealt with in the book Planning Cities With Young People and Schools, with co-author Deborah McKoy in conversation Jim Slotta, Professor and President’s Chair – Knowledge Technologies, OISE, and Urban Studies students.
Date: Thursday December 2, 2021
Time: 3:30 p.m. Pacific Time.
Penned by Deborah McKoy, Amanda Eppley and Shirl Buss at the Center for Cities and Schools – University of California Berkeley, this book discussion offers an urgently needed set of best-practice recommendations for urban planners to change the status quo and re-imagine the future of our cities for and with young people. Working with more than 10,000 students over two decades from the San Francisco Bay Area to New York to Tohoku, Japan, this work produces a wealth of insights on issues such as environmental planning, housing, transportation, regional planning, and urban planning education.
For academics, policy makers, and practitioners, this book raises the importance of education systems and young people as critical to urban planning and the future of our cities.
