Shifting Gears II – Four lectures on transportation, health, and the built environment
Details to come – but we’ve just had confirmation of our speaker for Feb 25: Niels Torslov, the Traffic Director for the City of Copenhagen. And when Copenhagen talks ‘traffic,’ they don’t mean just cars.
VIA Architecture Urban Design Lecture
Details to come
Admission is free to our lectures but reservations are required. Email cstudies(at)sfu.ca or call 778-782.5100.
Venue: SFU at Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings, Vancouver, unless otherwise noted.
So okay, the last thing you want to see (hear or read about) is another political campaign. But for entertainment value, you might want to check out this video:
We’re betting that live on the SFU Harbour Centre stage there were some candidates running in the November ’08 civic election that you’ll see again – maybe as a future councillor or mayor.
Our thanks to our co-hosts, the Vancouver Public Space Network – and all the volunteers, performers, judges and candidates who made the evening a success.
