SFU Public Square, in partnership with RECODE, an initiative of the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation hosted a day-long, national conversation on the role of colleges and universities in city-building. 

Designed by students from across Canada, this participatory, moving conference brought together students, university faculty and staff, city building leaders and community partners to reimagine how colleges and universities can be a driving force in creating vibrant, livable, and sustainable cities. 
 
With visits to SFU campuses in three Metro Vancouver cities and case studies from campuses across the country, participants had the opportunity to discuss national perspectives against the backdrop of living examples of community collaboration and city-building. 
 
Campus to City participants explored the three key roles that campuses play as hubs of innovation, as landowner and developers and as community animators. Themes such as sustainability, design for inclusivity, social finance, and First Nations perspectives were interwoven into the day during moving breakout sessions on tour buses. Participants were also challenged to bring back the ideas, the energy and the project possibilities back to innovate in their campus communities. 
 
Whether you are a student, faculty or staff at a university, a community partner or a leader involved in city building, you have a role to play in shaping this national conversation moving forward.
