RISE: An Ideas Competition Addressing Sea Level Rise

August 27, 2014

RISE is an open ideas competition addressing sea level rise in Metro Vancouver. Free to enter for teams of one to four people, with significant cash prizes, public voting, and an exciting exhibition day! It’s a way for anyone in our diverse community to develop innovative ideas that will help us to adapt and thrive – faster than the waters that surround us. SFU Public Square is proud to host RISE through the generous support of Vancouver Foundation’s Smart and Caring Communities Initiative. Our aim is to raise awareness of this important issue and provide the space for innovative ideas to emerge.

RISE is part of the SFU Public Square 2014 Community Summit being held October 19 - 24, 2014.
