On Thursday, February 25 from 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm join Dr. Leonie Sandercock from the UBC School of Community and Regional Planning for a virtual discussion on Urban Planning in Indigenous Communities! This discussion is part of the TRU Students’ Union’s Breaking Bread series to connect small groups of students with community leaders to share perspectives, foster connections, and build community.
Dr. Sandercock is part of designing and delivering the Indigenous Community Planning (ICP) concentration within UBC’s Master of Community and Regional Planning.
