DVA Metrocore Quilt: 2015 Roundtable Schedule

01 Oct DVA Metrocore Quilt: 2015 Roundtable Schedule

With community in mind, the Downtown Vancouver Association wants to canvass people from a diversity of backgrounds in order to ‘connect the dots’ on key urban issues. Our goal is to envision and enact a better working MetroCore for Vancouver. Our immediate aim is to identify a broadly shared vision to productively shape debate and then action around issues surrounding health and wellbeing in Vancouver’s Metrocore. We present this MetroCore Quilting series as a way to forward the discussion by connecting the dots on these issues.

Below is the 2015 schedule of the DVA MetroCore Quilt Roundtables and related events. These workshops will bring together participants interested in various aspects of successful city building to explore the shared understanding between businesses and community organizations that can help us take effective action in improving transportation in Vancouver’s MetroCore, both as individuals and groups. All sessions run from 8am-9:30am. Light refreshments will be served.
