Coming up next week at SFU Vancouver:


Thursday, August 20: City Conversations – Re-Imagining Downtown Vancouver
Time:  12:30pm   Place:  Lot 19 Park, 855 West Hastings Street (North end of Hornby St. at West Hastings St.)    Cost:  Free. No registration required.

Our downtown is changing—we want to hear from you about where it’s headed. What do you love about downtown Vancouver? What needs to change? How can we make this community one of the best in the world in which to live, work, play and learn?

To help get you thinking about the possibilities for the future of our downtown Vancouver over the next 25 years, we have invited three guests to present their visions. Lance Berelowitz, a planner, urban designer, award-winning writer and commentator will look at the evolution of downtown Vancouver's urban planning and design culture. Keltie Craig from the City of Vancouver will share her vision for downtown as a "healthy city." Rounding out the panel will be the Very Reverend Peter Elliott, Dean and Rector of Christ Church Cathedral Vancouver, who will discuss his hopes for social inclusion and community building in downtown Vancouver.


Wednesday, August 26: Online Information Session: SFU's Next-Generation Transportation Certificate
Time:  3pm   Place: Online – please register for the website   Cost:  Free with registration.

SFU’s new online Certificate in Next-Generation Transportation is designed to help mid-career professionals use next-generation transportation strategies to advance livable and sustainable cities of the future. We’ll emphasize case studies from around the world with policies and practices that resolve conflicts and explore trade-offs between different modes of transportation.
