Using Cartoons to Explain Smart Growth

Date: 3/21/2012




Using Cartoons to Explain Smart Growth



Produced by Vivre en Ville, an NGO dedicated to improving the quality of the natural and living environments in Quebec communities, Saga City is an entertaining animated video which explains how past transport and land use policies contribute to sprawl and automobile dependency, the problems that result, and how smart growth policy reforms can create better communities.




With its aim of promoting better practices in urban planning and sensitizing the population on the issues at stake, Saga City is a good introduction to urban planning issues for a general audience.
