The Vancouver City Planning Commission (VCPC) 2018 Summit on A City for All was held at the Community Roundhouse in Yaletown on December 4, 2018. The full day event was attended by over 228 participants from City of Vancouver Advisory Committees, community groups and organizations from all sectors (public, private, academic, and not for profit). Participants worked in 19 round-tables throughout the day to present examples of their work and lived experiences, identify their key findings, and make recommendations.
The goal was to improve Vancouver’s resiliency by building social capacity. The topics clustered around three themes: Belonging, Equity, and the Design of Places and Spaces; and overarching frameworks: Intersectionality and Reconciliation. At the end of the day, each table gave a brief summary of their priorities to senior City managers (see list of staff and trustees in the Acknowledgements section).
