There’s  a lot of content in free webinars and some real opportunities to learn more about emerging areas of planning. The Centre for Conscious Design has an impressive list of fellows including neuroscientist Dr. Robin Muzumder. 

They also have an ambitious set of free webinars straddling many of the major cities across the globe. Here is the chance to hear from practitioners in other places, as well as our own cities.

You can take a look at three upcoming webinars on Conscious City’s Toronto link. From October 19th to the 23rd they are hosting a “Shaping the Equitable City” event. One webinar is “Harnessing Change”.

How can evidence-based design be used to strengthen the wellbeing of entire communities?
Communities from coast to coast have been using DIALOG’s Community Wellbeing Framework to guide conversations on meaningfully improving their wellbeing–through the design of a park, the planning of a neighbourhood, or the construction of a building. Geared to grassroots organizers, designers and place-makers of all capacities, this workshop equips participants with the tools to facilitate design processes for wellbeing in their own communities.
