On Sunday October 19th 2014, a public exhibition will take place under the high ceilings and impressive architecture of SFU’s Segal Building, 500 Granville Street, in the heart of Vancouver. An open and inspiring space for competition entrants to show off their great ideas to you - the public - and our judges. Find out more about attending the public exhibition below, and don’t forget to put October 19th 2014 in your diary.


Free public exhibition

On exhibition day we will open the doors to the public for a free public exhibition of all the great ideas that come out of RISE. As a public visitor, you are invited see the ideas, meet the teams behind them, and listen-in to the idea pitches. We’d love to see as many of you as possible in our exhibition space to find out more about sea level rise, soak up the competition buzz, and enjoy some light refreshments. There is no need to register, just turn up on the day.

Listen-in on pitches

As the day unfolds, each team will have the opportunity to pitch their idea to our panel of judges – including you! Hear about how each team has tackled the issues associated with sea level rise in Metro Vancouver, and see how their idea creates the opportunity for communities to adapt and thrive. Your nods and looks of appreciation will give our judges a steer on how well supported each idea is by the public.

Cast your vote

By voting on ideas via your mobile phone, you will have the final word on which team takes home the People’s Choice prize. Meet the teams, ask questions, choose your favourite ideas, then head over to their idea page on the website to cast your vote online
