What Can We Learn from the Olympic Village Debacle?
Tuesday, February 22, 7:00-9:30 PM
You are invited to a special Olympic Village forum co-sponsored by SFU’s School of Public Policy to review the lessons we can learn from this high-profile project.
It’s been a year since Vancouver hosted the Winter Games and the public is still asking what went wrong(and right) with the Olympic Village project? What could have been done
differently? What are the housing, planning and other policy lessons? How can the
Olympic Village experience improve the way we do housing, development,
and planning across the Metro Vancouver region?
Join the discussion led by an expert panel that includes SFU School of Public Policy Professor Doug McArthur, developer Michael Geller, UBC Associate Vice President Nancy Knight, and Vancouver City Councilour Geoff Meggs. The forum will be moderated by Vancouver journalist and blogger Frances Bula and is co-sponsored by the Planning Institute of BC and ThinkCity, a Vancouver think tank.
Location: Simon Fraser University, Segal Graduate School of Business, 500 Granville St., Vancouver
