Design Centre for Sustainability at the University of British Columbia
By 2025, Greater Vancouver’s current population of 2 million will increase by 50%, to 3 million. It will double to almost 4 million people by 2050. How will the region accommodate that growth? How will housing, land use, jobs and transport be designed, delivered and distributed? How do we ensure continued livability in the region? The Design Centre for Sustainability is leading a collaborative effort to produce a compelling visual representation of what Greater Vancouver region might look like in 2050, at neighbourhood, district and region-wide scales. We call this project Sustainability by Design (SxD). It is one of UBC's World Urban Forum activities.
