“Creating Safe Cities within the City”

York University
Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Building,
88 The Pond Rd.,
Toronto, Ontario
October 30 and 31, 2013

Today’s city has evolved from a relatively simplistic collection of neighbourhoods to a much larger and more complex built form that more closely resembles a collection of “cities” within the city. One such example is York University, the site of this year’s CPTED Ontario conference. Learn how safety has become the watchword for large, complex urban environments and how Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design has and can play a definitive role in “Creating Safe Cities within the City”.
