SFU Public Square Addresses Urban Isolation

September 24, 2012

The Vancouver Sun and Georgia Straight are only two of numerous news sources that have dedicated multiple articles to exploring the issue of urban isolation.

“The lack of a sense of community and difficulty making friends are the biggest problems facing Metro Vancouverites, The Vancouver Sun reported recently in a five-part series. Now Simon Fraser University is giving people a chance to weigh in on what can be done about it.”

Prompted by SFU Public Square’s inaugural summit “Alone Together: Connecting in the City” and cutting-edge research by Vancouver Foundation, a lively conversation has now begun to identify solutions to combat this complex issue.
