My urban futures

My urban future includes dedicated community-based strategies that facilitate cross-sector, community-based interventions that bridge entrenched, historicized socio-economic divides. These sites act as loci of resistance, and are solid, anchored sites that belong to area residents. Their permanency allows for an ongoing mitigation of private, public and academic sector involvement, in accordance with resident desires for what their community should look like.


Alex Megelas is a programs coordinator at the Office of Community Engagement at Concordia University and a PhD student in Educational Studies at McGill University under the supervision of Profs. Henry Mintzberg and Naomi Nichols. He is an affiliate facilitator of the Centre for Community Organizations (COCo).  His most recent projects are Power Up!, a bike-powered exploration of hackerspaces at the intersection of technology, community and self-reliance; and Paper Places, a social learning experiment on mapmaking our relationship to the commons. He holds an MA in Educational Studies (Concordia) and is certified in conflict management through the Center for Human Relations and Community Studies at Concordia.
