On December 14, 2016, we had the opportunity to hear from people who participated as well as other local urbanists who explored the event’s potential impact on our communities. Dudoc and the Netherlands Consulate in Vancouver co-hosted a diverse panel of speakers to identify international and local possibilities to advance the New Urban Agenda which was agreed to in Quito. The evening explored its ambitious goals and possible impact with emphasis on inclusivity and housing. Our speakers offered their Canadian, Dutch and international perspectives on the topic. The evening was also an opportunity to meet with other Vancouverites passionate about building better urban communities.
