Three of the biggest decisions we make in life are our career, choice of life partner and the place (city and neighborhood) where we live. We’re offered lots of advice on the first two, but little on the third—in spite of the fact that the city we choose to live in impacts every aspect of our lives.
“The City & You: Find Your Best Place” is taught by U of T professor and world-leading urbanist, entrepreneur and best-selling author Richard Florida. Through engaging lectures and hands-on exercises, Prof. Florida offers the knowledge and tools to better understand what cities do, why they matter and how to pick the right city for you and your family.
Prof. Florida has customized this course expressly for U of T alumni. As a U of T grad you will be offered special videos, a unique U of T crowdsourcing map activity and the opportunity to attend in-person lectures offered by Prof. Florida.
