SCARP Speaker Series: SCARP's Leonie Sandercock and Maggie Low

RSVP here!


In this new speaker series, starting with SCARP faculty and soon new perspectives and lenses from worldwide experts in planning, we welcome students, faculty, alumni, and planners and friends near and far, to hear new perspectives, network, and ask the pertinent questions of the day. 

Each talk has new insights and best practices for equitable cities, climate resilience, community partnerships, and more; with implications between innumerable fields.
