Join us for a Jane’s Walk this year with David Gill, Program and Policy Planner for the SEEDs program at Campus & Community Planning.
Jane’s Walks are free, locally organized walking tours that give people the opportunity to get together to explore and celebrate their neighbourhoods. They are held annually around the world including at UBC to celebrate and honour urbanist Jane Jacobs, an advocate for sustainable and community-centred neighbourhoods. Jane’s Walks are not only educational, they are fun as well, and provide a great opportunity to meet your neighbours, and learn together.
How can universities serve as places to explore, test, and demonstrate solutions to societal issues? This Jane’s Walk will show how innovative collaborations between students, faculty, staff, and community partners have pushed the traditional boundaries of planning. We will visit a selection of projects along and beyond Main Mall, unearth the partnerships and stories embedded across the campus landscape, and see how UBC’s plans and ambitions around the public realm, climate change, zero waste, community engagement, and ecological and human wellbeing manifest in the texture of everyday life.
