SFU Public Square is seeking volunteers

psq_logo_colourSFU Public Square is seeking volunteers for one of our popular initiatives “City Conversations”.
On June 20th (next Thursday) we will be hosting a lunchtime session with guests from the Mayor’s Engaged City Task Force.

About the Event:
‘The city doesn’t listen to us’ has been a perennial complaint in Vancouver. The city is taking it seriously. On Thursday, June 20 at a special outdoors SFU City Conversations, public members of the Mayor’s Engaged City Task Force will describe their initial recommendations to improve the conversations between the city and its citizens—and then will engage the public in an extended conversation on the topic.

Our presenters are task force members Lizzy Karp, creator of Rain City Chronicles; Sam Chan, an SFU PhD candidate studying transformational change; and Lyndsay Poaps, former Vancouver Parks Commissioner. Then it will be your turn. City Conversations will be held at the Lot 19 Parkette (at the north end of Hornby St., between Hastings and Cordova St). You’re welcome to bring your lunch, and food will be available nearby.

Volunteer Commitment:
Volunteers are needed to help with general event set-up and take-down.
10:30-12:30 event set-up
1:30- 2:30 event take-down

You are welcome to be involved in both the set up and take down for the event 10:30-2:30!
