I'm working on a PhD at the University of Waterloo School of Planning (image from website). Students and faculty have been a great stimulus to explore ideas about what cities are and what role planners and scholars have, could or should have in the future of those cities.

A second interesting circle at UWaterloo is the Network Science Reading Group that I'm part of. We've worked through a good stack of papers, had many interesting discussions and learned a lot about the exploding field of network theory. 

The Waterloo Institute for Complexity and Innovation has been another circle where valuable ideas are explored under the general banner of complexity science and how that science might inform more effective and resilient human and natural systems.

You can see our beta version of a digital bookshelf for UWaterloo Planning students here at the UW Planning Bookshelf.
