McGill Sustainability Research Symposium

13Mar2015
Thomson House Ballroom, 3650 rue McTavish, Montreal, QC, H3A 1Y2, CA

According to Ancient Greek culture, the circle is the perfect shape. No beginning. No end. What if we use this perfection to look at the systems that surrounds us? What if we try to close the loop?

Kevin Manaugh, McGill Prof., lead author on study of cities trying to involve different aspects of sustainability to spur economic growth

“Almost all [cities involved] have wide goals about how the infrastructure should be equitably distributed, but then nothing is really measured, because there isn’t a clear target for performance measure for many plans.” - Kevin Manaugh

“In terms of being able to measure data," Manaugh says, "surveys on trains or buses can get a lot of information about who’s being served and who’s not being served using simple mapping and census data, so that people who are less well off have access to the same economic opportunities.”

The Vancouver Sun | Jan. 25, 2015

By: Daphne Bramham

A slum or a squatter’s settlement isn’t where one expects to find an architect.
