Collaborative for Advanced Landscape Planning (CALP)

About Community Energy Explorer

The Collaborative for Advanced Landscape Planning (CALP) is an interdisciplinary research team at UBC that focuses on community-based research to develop solutions for sustainability and climate change. CALP brings rigorous science and modeling, environmental design, visualization media, and participatory visioning processes to planning low-carbon resilient attractive communities. CALP’s work applies innovative visual tools and videogames to engage community stakeholders, co-create knowledge, evaluate people’s responses, advance collective behaviour change, and develop new policies. Recent studies explore alternative futures addressing sea-level rise, urban forestry, renewable energy, and retrofitting neighbourhoods.
