Urban Calgary Students’ Association is a student led organization originating from the University of Calgary. The objectives of UrbanCSA are to engage students on urban issues (especially those faced by Calgarians); to bridge the gap between the student, the citizen, and the professional. UrbanCSA runs monthly speaker sessions, tours, academic workshops and more casual events. The association provides members with the opportunity to meet similarly interested students and citizens; and supplement their degree with experience outside of regular academic activities.
We also own and operate this blog and comment on issues regarding sustainable development in Calgary and the surrounding region. In the past the club has commented, or developed, proposals such as secondary suites, PlanIt Calgary, the Brentwood TOD, etc.
