Reimagining Public Engagement in Parks and Public Spaces

September 30, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

What is the future of public engagement?

COVID-19 has shaken up standard community engagement methods. Can we seize this moment to develop more creative methods to foster it?

This webinar will look at a new wave of creative and community-centric approaches to support community engagement that positions community members as local experts before designs are produced and long after the ribbon is cut on a new park.

The panellists:

  • Mikael St. Pierre, Project and Development Manager at Montréal Urban Ecology Centre
  • Sophia Horwitz, partner and co-founder of COLAB
  • Jennifer Franks, Lead, Indigenous Placemaking, City of Toronto
  • Cheryll Case, Founder and Principal, CP Planning; City of Brampton

This webinar is ticket-based with a pay-what-you-can structure. All donations will go directly to support Park People’s parks and public space programs and initiatives.

This webinar series is taking place in English but we are offering simultaneous French interpretation.
