How are they making waves?
Ian Picketts is the Manager of sustainability and Climate change for the District of Squamish. His research includes climate change adaptation in the realm of infrastructure. Specifically he is interested in how climate change can affect resource development in his community in Squamish.
This is where his project “Spaces, Places and Possibilities” comes into play. This project looks into integrating urban systems modeling with visualization techniques, to more informed decisions on building of physical infrastructure.
Applications of innovation for future use
The “Spaces, Places and Possibilities” will inform the construction of infrastructure in Squamish so locals will be better prepared for more extreme weather incidents.
