Fulbright Scholar visits KI

Mary Stewart, an author, visual artist, retired university professor, and expert in creativity and teaching creative thinking, is visiting the Department of Knowledge Integration as a Fulbright Scholar for 2 months this fall.  

KI professor Mathieu Feagan collaborates to answer the question: How do we plan our cities in an equitable and just way for a future affected by the massive upheavals of climate change?

Bailey Gardien and her collaborators participated in Future City Builders, an immersive Evergreen initiative, to create and launch innovative solutions to urban challenges. 

After four months of Virtual Design Thinking labs, networking, workshops, and mentorship, they pitched their idea to help students who are financially limited to take up a cost-friendly and healthier alternative to traditional transportation, and they were awarded $5,000 in seed funding.

The participants of the Shad Waterloo high school enrichment program are holding a public open house to share highlights of their experiences, including creative ideas they have come up with to tackle this year’s design project theme, “How might we improve the well-being of Canadians?”
