The City Program at SFU Vancouver sponsors City Conversations during a few lunchtimes every month. The topics covered can include anything related to the geography of how we live. These one-hour lunchtime programs start with a quick presentation about the topic at hand. After the brief presentation, the presenters and the participants engage in a conversation.
The next City Conversations is this Thursday from 12:30pm to 1:30pm, and is titled “Rising Stars: Shaping the Future of the Metro Region.” From the City Conversations Website:

They host public planning sessions at beer & BBQ parties. They offer residents who complain of speeding cars a choice: we can slow the traffic, but you’ll have less street parking (and a bike lane!). They supply all of Vancouver’s water, and much of its outdoor recreation.
They’re young, bright, imaginative… and elected. They’re not Vancouverites, but from neighbouring cities we don’t spend much time thinking about. We can learn from them, and have a good time doing so.
Come join a conversation with three future leaders of the region: New Westminster councillor Patrick Johnstone, North Vancouver’s councillor Mathew Bond, and Langley City’s councillor Nathan Pachal. Rising stars, helping to shape our future.
If you happen to be around Downtown Vancouver on Thursday, please consider stopping by. Registration is not required, and there is no cost to attend. Here is the location details:
