The Canadian Institute of Planners and the Alberta Professional Planners Institute are pleased to invite you to the national planning conference, Building Resilience 2017, in Calgary from June 17-20, 2017.
Our cities, towns, and communities are facing a growing number of changes. From understanding new environmental concerns to responding to shifts in demographics and our globalizing local economies, planners and their colleagues are navigating new realities of what “building resilience” means.
The 2017 Annual Conference aims to support those engaged with building resiliency through an engaging, collaborative, and thought-provoking forum to explore this critical aspect of our shared futures. From celebrating successes, to sharing key learnings, to highlighting emerging research and best practices, the conference will bring practitioners, policy makers, community leaders, students, and others with an interest in community and regional planning, together in thoughtful dialogue.
