VanPlay Oct 17 2017

What will Vancouver’s parks and public spaces look like in 25 years, or a century? The VPSN has been honoured to be part of two of the VanPlay Smart City Talks organized by the Urbanarium Society, UBC School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, and the Vancouver Park Board. We’re delighted to share details of the next lecture, taking place on Tuesday, October 17 @ 6:30pm covering the themes of Ecology and Nature.

This lecture explores the ecological and environmental sustainability dimensions of parks and public spaces in urban environments with two leading experts: Melina Scholefield, Manager of the City’s Green Infrastructure Implementation, and Steven Apfelbaum, Senior Ecologist, Founder & Chairman of Applied Ecological Services.

A little further along, the VPSN’s Andrew Pask will be back moderating the following event on November 1, covering the theme of Celebration and Diversity. Details on this event will be shared shortly.
