About Metro Conversations
Metro Conversations is a re-imagining of SFU City Conversations, adapted to reach new audiences in new geographies. Each conversation focuses on an element of the modern urban experience such as sustainability, affordable housing, regional planning, transportation, arts and culture, neighborhood development, heritage protection, and accessibility.
These conversations are about bringing urbanist and city making conversations out of the downtown core to places where cool urban transformations are happening: the urban edge, the North Shore, South of the Fraser, the Northeast sector. We provide experts with contrasting views to present some facts and get the conversation rolling. Then, ask your questions and present your opinions so we all can learn from each other. Metro Conversations doesn't have lecturers and audience, but presenters and participants. It's a conversation. Add your voice.
Metro Conversations are presented in partnership with SFU Public Square and hosted by city councillors Nathan Pachal from the City of Langley, Kiersten Duncan from the City of Maple Ridge, Mathew Bond from the District of North Vancouver and Patrick Johnstone of New Westminster.
