“Sustainable Waterfront Planning Through Reconciliation” webinar
To make informed decisions around waterfront development proposals, stormwater management plans and environmental impact studies are often used to communicate the impacts of development from a western science perspective. But how about Indigenous science?
To further the efforts of the Ontario Professional Planners Institute’s Indigenous Planning Perspectives Task Force, the Planning For Our Shorelands program presents Sustainable Waterfront Planning Through Reconciliation, a collaborative workshop discussing “land use planning” from an Indigenous perspective, the important role of vegetated shoreline buffers, and the collaborative nature of sustainability. This workshop is aimed at familiarizing local decision-makers with Indigenous relations to water and will engage the audience to reflect on ways they can take steps to include Indigenous voices in decision-making processes around waterfront development and planning.
