How to put participatory urban planning into practice?

This June, the Active Neighbourhoods Canada partnership launched the Co-Designing the Active City webinar series to provide professionals and decision-makers with key tools for planning and developing healthy communities across Canada. The first webinar of the series introduced our participatory urban planning approach and showed how our approach contributes to health equity in communities.

This webinar is the second in the series, and it will take a deeper dive into some of the engagement tools we use to involve citizens in the co-design process. We will use case studies and examples to show you how to employ some of the tools in our co-design toolkit. Stay tuned for a third webinar in the fall, which will highlight inspiring projects and policies across Canada.

All of the webinars, three in French and three in English, are available for free online. Following their broadcast, recordings of the webinars are archived on ParticipatoryPlanning.ca, where you are now able to watch the first session of the series.


Broadcast: August 28th2019 at 1 pm, Eastern time (ET)

Join us for the second webinar of the series! This webinar will explore citizen engagement tools to implement a participatory urban planning project in your neighbourhood. We will provide specific examples of how we have employed these co-design tools in our projects. 

Considering the ‘’Designing Healthy Living’’ report by Public Health Agency of Canada highlighting the links between the built environment and health, ANC wishes to make our co-design process accessible to all, in order to promote the development of green, healthy and equitable communities.


Starting from an understanding of the built environment factors that promote human health and wellness, we will show how the planning and development of cities and neighbourhoods are essential to our health. This webinar will introduce a list of essential citizen engagement tools to use in the implementation of a participatory urban planning project. We will also present questions to ask before undertaking any participatory planning approach. Case studies will be used throughout the webinar to spark creativity and demonstrate the efficiency of the tools on the ground.

It is worth noting that this webinar will be broadcast in French on September 18th at 1 pm (ET).
