For those of you interested in helping shape how schools fit into urban planning, the Queen City Hub and Regina Advocates for Design, in partnership with Regina Urban Ecology and the Saskatchewan Professional Planners Institute, have launched a new monthly discussion series. “Urbanity 101” is a discussion series on how policy, people, and design shape our city.
The series will include presentations by Regina’s design and planning professionals followed by discussion with all participants. The first of three evening events took place March 12, with two more events to follow on April 9 and May 7.
Next month’s event will be focused on Civic Engagement, offering tools and examples of how you can participate in your city’s success. The May event will emphasize engagement and interactivity. Attendees will be invited to share their vision through an Interactive design workshop for a revitalization area in Regina.
“Great cities don’t happen by accident. They evolve from the political and social will of the community”, Regina Advocates for Design representative Chris Kailing said in a media release. “If we expect our leaders to make a great place for us to live and do nothing to assist or influence them then we must learn to accept disappointment. But if residents engage in their community and city great things can happen.”
All lectures will be held at Queen City Hub, located in Creative City Centre, 1843 Hamilton Street, starting at 7 p.m.
