An excellent way to introduce our region’s next generation to the goals of this plan is to integrate the plan into a higher education curricula. More than just a case study, the expectation is that the Seven50 initiative will continue into the future. The region’s educational institutions could play an important role in plan implementation, helping the Seven50 initiative to continue into the future.
To begin the conversation with the universities Seven50 held a regional summit at Miami-Dade College. The plan was later presented to architecture students at the University of Miami, and Seven50 joined planning students at Florida Atlantic University on Park(ing) Day in 2013.
University affiliations have already begun with Steve Sauls, the Vice President of Governmental Relations at FIU presiding on the executive committee for Seven50 and coordinating efforts with FIU.
