Perspectives from Vancouver

The SFU Public Square 2018 Community Summit will be about The New World of Work: Thriving or Surviving?

The keynote speakers and #bravenewwork tour guides are Van Jones and Anne-Marie Slaughter – what sort of challenges are ahead, and how might we address them through green jobs, emergent industries, education, and public policy?

Van Jones is a social entrepreneur, CNN political contributor, the host of The Messy Truth with Van Jones and, most recently, his own talk show, The Van Jones Show.

Anne-Marie Slaughter has been described as “an innovative and prolific scholar” by Foreign Policy and named one of the magazine’s Top 100 Global Thinkers four years in a row.

On February 28 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, Van Jones and Anne-Marie Slaughter will take the stage together for the first time.
