Dr. Wayne Caldwell's Research Day
Gateway attended Dr. Wayne Caldwell’s (Research Chair of Healthy Sustainable Communities) annual Research Advisory Committee Meeting on June 12th, 2015 at the University of Guelph. Dr. Caldwell and his PhD and Master’s students presented their research projects that are currently ongoing and recently completed. The projects were all surrounding Rural Economic Development, but were further subdivided into 3 themes: “Planning for Agriculture”, “Planning for Healthy Communities”, and “Planning for Rural Resilience and Local Economic Development”. This was a productive meeting for Dr. Caldwell as he was able to raise awareness of his research, as well as receive input on the projects from attendees, which consisted of municipal planners, OMAFRA representatives and research organization representatives.
