Winter 2014 NewsBytes

Author: 

The Winter2014 edition of NewsBytes covers activities and reflections from SCARP between November 2013-February 2014 (download it here!).  Christa Brown starts us off with an overview of her involvement with the 10th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival for Nathan Edelson's Social Learning Studio course last fall.  We're then introduced to our 2014 PSA President Rebecca Chaster and the PSA Executive, before learning a little bit about the role of open data in planning from Karen Quinn Fung. Then it's onto a quick review of the successful 2014 SCARP Student Symposium, "Embracing ComplexCity" - featuring keynotes from Andrew Weaver, Ann Maje Raider, and SCARP's own John Friedmann.

From there it's over to the West Bank with Sarah Thomas, who considers issues around solid waste management in the midst of conflict and political tensions.  Erin Rennie brings us back to SCARP with a fun top 10 list of why everyone should attend SCARP's wonderful PSA Lunchtime Lectures, then suddenly we're off to Haida Gwaii with Melanie Harding and Daniel Iwama to get a taste of SCARP's Indigenous Community Planning experience.  Patrick Lo shuttles us down the Cascadian coast to Portland, OR with a photo essay of the annual reading break trip, before Gabrielle Esser reflects on the presence of rape culture in politics.

To round things off, Post Doctoral Fellow Shona L van Zijll de Jong, PhD ABCP introduces us to her work to support risk-based land use planning in Canada and New Zealand. We're then treated to Eliana Chia's perspective on the collective story harvest held in November for Aftab Erfan's Negotiation, Facilitation, and Conflict Resolution course.
