Event description

Description

The impacts of technology, shifting demographics, and development means that cities must think differently about how they invest in and support residents. Mid-sized cities are well positioned to be leaders in creating innovative and inclusive urban environments, if we commit to learning from each other and finding new opportunities for participation and collaboration across sectors and communities.

On May 16th, 2018 the Mid-Sized Cities Researcher + Practitioner Roundtable will bring together leaders from mid-sized cities across Canada to share and discuss opportunities for innovative city-building. Through deep-dive discussions with experts in both theory and practice, participants will learn about age-friendly communities, creating smart mid-sized cities, advancing sustainable development, approaches to newcomer integration, partnership-building with Indigenous communities, and addressing pressing social issues.

Save-the-date

We are kicking off the series of events on Tuesday, May 15th, 2018 with community-led walking tours and a public event in partnership with CBC London, London Community Foundation, Innovation Works, UnLondon, the Urban League of London, and City of London. Registration and details on these events to come!
