Alberta’s communities are in a period of transition-seeking increased sustainability and further improvement upon the great quality of life they offer their residents. In this year’s Celebration of Planning fundraiser, four key leaders shared a transformative idea in a Pecha Kucha presentation. Proceeds from the event went to support scholarships for both undergraduate and graduate planning programs at the University of Alberta.
