Jane Jacobs is a name very dear to many Torontonians. She was an American-Canadian activist best known for her powerful influence on urban development. During her life in Canada, she saved Toronto from several disasterous urban plans, including the notorious Spadina Expressway. 

Professor Descrochers (Professor of Geology at Guelph University) will be lecturing in depth on her role as a spontaneous order methodologist, reflected in her views that the voluntary actions and co-operations of individuals, as opposed to mass central planning, create a vibrant and healthy city. He previously gave an abbrevated talk on the subject at the 2014 ICPM.

The event will be held at the Pauper's Pub, located on the corner of Bloor St. and Lippincott; just immediately outside Jane Jacobs' own beloved neighbourhood, The Annex!

ADMISSION: Free. The event will be held on the second floor, all are very much welcome.
