SHORT-TERM INTERVENTIONS INSPIRING LONG-TERM CHANGE

with Harold Madi and Megan Jones, Stantec

 

Much of the infrastructure in place today was designed for a different time —a time of much different priorities. Just because that’s the way it’s always been, doesn’t mean that’s the way it should stay. Tactical urbanism refers to testing out temporary interventions that can inspire permanent changes in our future to reflect a community we all can live, work and play in. Learn more about tactical urbanism and put your new skills to work in this two day seminar and workshop.
