PRESENTERS:

Aiyu is a recent graduate from the Urban and Regional Planning program at the University of Alberta. She's seen how Edmonton’s climate changed little by little in the past few years, getting more and more like Vancouver but also less predictable. She feels compelled to research climate change and contribute to building climate resilience in Edmonton from an urban planning perspective.
