Biography:

Expertise: Ph.D in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Waterloo. 

Judith's background is in planning and economics, with a particular interest in social learning and social mobilization approaches to planning. Judith notes: Integral education recognizes the wealth of informal knowledge that exists at the community level. By promoting a learning society, the university contributes to a more equitable, more inclusive world; societies in which gatekeepers and professionals erect barriers to participation by the majority of people will not be prepared to address the complex issues that are emerging in the 21st century.
