Urban experts, activists, scholars and young leaders turned out for CivicAction’s seventh annual Emerging Leaders Network(ELN) Studio conference held in partnership with U of T on Nov. 7.
“The University of Toronto has a true commitment to its engagement with the city,” Professor Charlie Keil said, as he welcomed almost 200 participants – a record number – to U of T’s Chesnut Conference Centre.
“For me, CivicAction represents the best of what the city can do and the U of T is proud to be part of what CivicAction is trying to do.”
The day-long conference was entitled “Reimagine Where We Live” and the discussions focused on what constitutes public space and how to best use it for citizens in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Region.
