About City Conversations

Urban design. Culture and art. Planning and architecture. The environment, agriculture and food. Health. The economy and what drives it. Housing, neighbourhoods and special places. Transportation. Social issues. These are some of the topics of City Conversations, a new series of Thursday noontime meet-ups at Simon Fraser University’s Vancouver campus.

Bring your lunch, and settle in to listen to the most knowledgable people we can find on the most current topics affecting Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. Whenever possible, we’ll try to provide experts with contrasting views, to get the facts out front and the conversation rolling. Then ask your questions and present your opinions, so we all can learn from each other.

Make it a habit to drop by the first and third Thursday of each month. SFU’s Vancouver campus is only 100 steps from Waterfront Station, the heart of the region’s transit network. We start promptly at 12:30 PM, and end promptly at 1:30 PM, so you can get on with the rest of your day. No fees or registration, and just one favour: please unwrap your sandwich before the conversation starts.

City Conversations are a presentation of SFU Public Square. Sponsored by Bing Thom Architects and SFU Vancouver. Thanks to Wild Rice Restaurants.
