The state of Calgary’s expanding landscape — and what to do about it — is constantly debated by city council, the home builders’ association, and pundits on Twitter. The city’s urban design affects more than just roads and houses — it changes the kind of life Calgarians live, what kind of talent we attract and the health outcomes we can expect.

If you were at Calgary's Folk Festival this past weekend, did you see EVDS graduate student Natalie Robertson's 'Energy Harvesters' at the National Stage or by the entrance of the Main Gate?

The Crescent Heights Community Association (CHCA) held a planning and development workshop, on the morning of July 18, to develop a study to address potential issues of future development in the community and identify solutions to manage them. Hosted in partnership with the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Environmental Design Urban Lab, Crescent Heights residents participated in the study by sharing their unique perspective on their community.
