Whew! It’s been a while. I took somewhat of a blog-hiatus this summer to let my thoughts brew a bit on what to next contribute to this blog. While offline, I spent the summer in Ottawa working at Employment and Social Development Canada’s Innovation Lab as a communications assistant. After internalizing a bit of what I learned, I’m prepared to connect it to the urban planning realm here along with some other topics, which you may find lean a bit more on the social aspects of planning.
Here’s a list of topics you can expect to see me explore here in the next couple months:
Innovation and Urban Planning – what is ‘design thinking’ and how can we use it?
What does urban planning look like through a feminist lens and why is feminism a crucial element in city building?
Why and how should planners emphasize Indigenous participation?
I’ll get my next (actual) blog post out this Friday.
