7th Annual Community Engagement Event (2021): Connecting classroom and community: Exploring urban planning issues for campus-community engagement

In May 2021, the CCEP hosted an online panel and discussion focusing on opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to work with local communities in Ottawa on issues raised by the development of the City’s Official Plan. The aim was to develop concrete, meaningful connections within and between Carleton and community actors. This event will be the first in a series exploring opportunities to connect the university and community on local issues in the City of Ottawa.

Speakers included Paul Johanis of the Greenspace Alliance and the People’s Official Plan for Ottawa’s Climate Emergency, Cheryl Randall of Ecology Ottawa, Chris Stoney of Carleton’s School of Public Policy and Administration, and Ozayr Saloojee of Carleton’s Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism.
