    Philosophers' Café | What Does it Mean to be Bicultural?
    For many people, especially in Vancouver, understanding who they are is influenced by more than one culture. How do people make sense of these multiple meaning systems? How do they manage their cultural identity(ies)? What effect does being bicultural have on their lives at home and at work?

    Teen Café | Play vs. Work: Do We Play Enough?
    Often called “child's work,” play has long been accepted as what kids do. When kids play it's called development. When adults play it's the opposite of work and given names like leisure, gambling, or gaming. Is play the opposite of work? Why is play less valuable as we age? Is play just for kids or is it something we all need as we grow up?

    Philosophers' Café | Is it Time for a Basic Income Guarantee (BIG)?
    The idea that government should provide everyone with an unconditional and reasonably generous basic income is gaining ground. It could be cheaper to run than existing means-tested social programs and would give people more control over their lives. But it also implies painful trade-offs, like doing away with publicly funded health insurance.
