How do we ensure that the new green spaces we design for our communities creates a positive experience for all potential users? This is the challenge being tackled by members of our WSP planning team, working to develop spaces that are equitable for everyone.
Green space is important for both our mental and physical health. And how we experience those spaces can influence us greatly, encouraging or discouraging us from utilizing these spaces on a regular basis.
"We must reinvent the physical and social structure of the built environment to reveal the full importance of lived experiences.”
Learn more about how we create equitable spaces for all users in this article from WSP’s Andria Sallese, Sky Carville and Alison Lumby, published in the Spring/Summer 2022 edition of the Ontario Professional Planners Institute’s Y Magazine.
