TRIP ORGANIZER ||| REPORT DESIGNER
In March of 2016, a group of seven UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs Urban Planning students traveled to Vancouver. Over the course of seven days we met with local governments, planning consultants, urban designers and architects to learn first-hand about the programs and policies guiding the City of Vancouver.
This entirely student-led project compared the major themes in LA’s Sustainable City pLAn to the major themes in Metro Vancouver’s set of sustainability documents, including the Greenest City 2020 plan. Once the major themes were identified, using the knowledge we gained from the discussions, lectures, and presentations in Vancouver, we compared the plans to determine in what ways Los Angeles could learn from Vancouver’s progress (and in some cases, ways Vancouver could learn from Los Angeles’).
