More about Building a Culture of Participation with Dave Meslin…
Join SFU Public Square, the Centre for Dialogue and the City of Vancouver for a workshop on Building a Culture of Participation with Dave Meslin.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together 60 participants, including students and other community members, City staff, and representatives from the Mayor’s Engaged City Task Force, to consider how we may increase citizen empowerment in future city decision-making processes.

Volunteer Responsibilities:
We are seeking 3 note-takers. Note-takers will record key points during breakout sessions, and will have the opportunity to interact with City planners and decision makers, citizens and leading intellectuals. In addition to gaining valuable experience supporting civic dialogue, they will have opportunities to network and hear a presentation by Dave Meslin. http://www.tedxtoronto.com/speakers/dave-meslin. Lunch will be provided.

More about Design Jams…
We are hosting three idea jams across Metro Vancouver. As part of our 2013 Community Summit, SFU Public Square will invite young people to identify key priorities and take part in a province-wide dialogue about the BC economy. The Design Jams will influence the planning of the Summit Youth Forum.

All jams are FREE. Snacks will be provided.


Volunteer Responsibilities:
We are seeking 6 note-takers. Note-takers will record the dialogue and process of a group of 5 people while they develop strategies and ideas for the Summit youth forum.

If you are interested in volunteering for any of these opportunities, please e-mail Kate at: kate_publicsq@sfu.ca
