As a Master of Urban Planning student at the University of Calgary I'm taking what is discussed in the classroom directly to our community by having conversations with Calgarians about how we live and how we commute within our city. With the challenges of our current economy it is important for us to 'think different' when it comes to urban and regional planning to ensure that growth makes sense.

If you share my concerns about the state of our city and want things to change please take a few minutes to view the 'State of the City' videos (#SOTCyyc) and join with other Calgarians by entering your email on I'm in or by signing in with your Twitter or Facebook account for monthly updates on issues that affect all of us.

Thank you and I look forward to our conversations about what it means to build an equitable, sustainable community.
