Now & Then: Encounter on Urban Environment - Viewing & Talk
Join Global Shapers Halifax for the launch of their year-long PRJCT CTZN initiative. We're kicking off the project by screening clips from the 1971 NFB film "Encounter on Urban Environment" followed up with conversations from prominent urban leaders to draw parallels between the development happening in the 1970s and the state of development and progress in Halifax today.
Discussions will be led after we view a selection of clips from the doc, and will include Councillor Lindell Smith, along with several HRM planners who are currently working on projects such as the Centre Plan and the Spring Garden Road redevelopment project, and Dalhousie University Enactus Faculty Representative.
More about PRJCT CTZN: Project Citizen (PRJCT CTZN) is an initiative of the Halifax Global Shapers Hub. Aiming to increase civic engagement among young folks through a series of non-partisan workshops, presentations, talks, events and more!
Each month will be a different style of event, with constant evaluation and tweaks. We will aim to decrease voter apathy, increase political dialogue and demystify the political process. Democracy doesn’t just end at the voting booth, it’s a year round activity.

More about Encounter on Urban Environment: This feature documentary takes a look at how the Halifax/Dartmouth community in Nova Scotia was stimulated by a week-long session held by a panel of specialists from different fields who met with members of this urban community to consider the future of the area and the responsibility of the citizens and government in planning the future.
* A note about the location: This event is taking place at The Good Hub (5557 Cunard St., Second Floor) which unfortunately at this time does not have an accessible option to get to the second floor. We strive to offer events in physically accessible spaces and would love support in finding such spaces.
We would like to remember that this event happens on Mi'kma'ki, un-ceded, un-surrendered land of the Mi'kmaw people.
