Rethinking the Region forum, Nov 3, in Surrey, explores regionalism in Lower Mainland

Rethinking the Region forum, Nov. 3, 2012
Other links here (Spacing Vancouver) and here (SFU Urban Studies).

This forum explores how regionalism is being practiced in the lower mainland and assesses whether current governance arrangements suit the needs and complexities of a growing region.

The forum will kick off with an academic panel exploring the many ways that we conceive the region (i.e. planning, economy, transportation, cultural). This will be followed by a practitioners’ panel exploring how organizations are acting regionally and what regional configurations could make these sectors stronger.

When: Saturday, November 3 | 10AM – 1PM

Where: Room 5280, SFU Surrey (map), adjacent to the Surrey Central Skytrain station
