U of A City-Region Studies Centre: Creating Intelligent Liveable Cities

December 1, 2009 - 2:00am to 3:30am

In the face of new challenges like peak oil, climate change and economic chaos how can city experts make sense of the overwhelming challenges that threaten life in the “human hive” as we know it? How can well meaning, well educated and well intentioned staff of municipalities, planning companies, land developers, and civil society find the time, space and spheres of influence they need not just to do their jobs effectively but to make sense of life conditions never before experienced?

Marilyn Hamilton will discuss topics such as the city's carrying capacity and the roles various professionals play in the planning process.


Marilyn Hamilton is Associate Faculty at Royal Roads University School of Leadership and author of Integral City: Evolutionary Intelligences for the Human Hive.
