Nathan Edelson will reflect on his experience of almost a half century as a community planner in Vancouver and other cities in North America. He has contributed to many innovative initiatives and worked closely with Jim Green as the former Senior Planner for the Downtown Eastside. He has served as the Founding Executive Director of Little Mountain Neighbourhood House and an Adjunct Professor at UBC's School of Planning. He is currently the Project Manager for the False Creek South *RePlan Committee, a consultant on Local Jobs and Procurement with the Parq Vancouver and an active board member of the Portland Hotel Society and the DTES Centre for the Arts. He will discuss the future of community planning in Vancouver, including how best to intervene where the fractures and fault lines present themselves. Edelson will reflect on how best to activate neighbourhood residents and business people to build public support for progressive policy making.
