UBC prepared me for a rewarding career as an Urban Planner. Preserving our beautiful planet and the creation satisfying living conditions for its citizens is a challenge. I considered other schools of planning and had chosen to undertake studies at the University of London. Professor Oberlander intervened! His charm and incredible background of experience in the field convinced me! My training at UBC served both me, and the communities in Europe, Canada and the States I have worked with, well.
