27 Nov Highlights from Roundtable 3: Building Community in Vibrant Neighbourhoods

The DVA – Connecting the Dots: Towards Health and Wellbeing in our Communities…

On November 26, 2015, the DVA held its third in a series of Metrocore Quilting roundtables exploring the connection between this year’s subject area Health and Wellbeing and some of the key components of successful city-making. The goal is to generate a “quilt” of insights leading to inform the development of a DVA advocacy strategy on the subject of Health and Wellbeing.

…a building community in vibrant neighbourhoods perspective.

The November 26 roundtable hosted by VIA Architecture brought together participants involved in creating vibrant neighbourhoods to explore the shared understanding between residents, businesses, and community organizations that can help us inform our position on health and wellbeing in Vancouver’s Metrocore.
