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
