Moving Ahead - Sea2City Coastal Design Challenge
Starting up later in 2021, we will embark on an innovative planning and design challenge. The Sea2City Design Challenge will create a vision to guide urban development and ecological revitalization in False Creek and along the Fraser River Foreshore. The project will engage multidisciplinary teams to work cooperatively with the City of Vancouver and project partners to:
- Increase public awareness of climate change and sea level rise
- Expand the City’s toolbox of coastal flood management approaches
- Develop a conceptual route for flood management systems and structures along False Creek and the Fraser River Foreshore
- Explore approaches to coastal adaptation for sea level rise beyond one metre
Participating teams will be guided by the community values and design principles developed through the Coastal Adaptation Plan project for the Fraser River Foreshore and False Creek. Sea2City will also include additional engagement with residents, business owners, community groups, and xʷməθkʷəyə̓ m (Musqueam), Sḵwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ilwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
