This issue focuses on planners and the public realm.
Healthy, sustainable communities don’t just happen — they are planned. From housing, schools, and hospitals to transit, parks, and rural development, planners work behind the scenes, of every decision made in every community in the province. Planners consider culture, equity, demographics, trends, density, environment, engagement, and so much more in every project they encounter. The Spring/Summer issue of Y Magazine is all about the many different ways planners serve the public interest by working to improve the health and sustainability of communities for everyone in Ontario.
This issue focuses on planning for climate change.
Many, if not most, planners have been sounding the alarm around climate change for decades. Environmental sustainability, urban resiliency, parkland conservation, and agricultural preservation are not buzzwords in the planning profession. These are vital considerations that factor in everything from weather and wetlands, greenhouse gas emissions and air quality, food security and crop viability, public health and safety, and so much more. The Fall/Winter issue of Y Magazine is all about the work planners are doing to ensure that mitigating the effects of climate change is a priority for Ontario decision makers.
