Where: BCIT Campus Downtown, 2nd Floor
555 Seymour Street Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Vancouver, British Columbia V6B 3H6
When: October 30th, 8:30AM - 4:00PM
Why: To network, generate ideas, and organize around sustainable transportation!
This 'unconference' is a forum for exploring the following theme:
How can transportation be a catalyst for building more vibrant communities in the Lower Mainland?
The unconference is a departure from conventional conference formats. The event will have a small number of pre-arranged sessions, even fewer formal presentations, and absolutely no PowerPoint.
The event will be a forum for ideation and solutions, not debate. We're here to listen to each other, generate knowledge, and organize for action. All ideas are welcome.
At the beginning of the conference, everyone present will have an equal opportunity to shape the sub-topics that will be discussed that day. The goal is to share ideas in an open, safe and respectful environment. No one is responsible to answer specific questions, no one gets any homework, and the day ends at 4pm.
Participants will pay only a nominal admission fee ($25) to help cover the costs. A light breakfast and lunch are included with this admission fee. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis and, due to space limitations, participation is limited to 150 people.
Lastly, the conference organizers explicitly take no responsibility for the outcomes of this conference. Our goal is to create an open forum for the exchange of ideas, networking, and social mobilization.
A big thank you to Co-operative Auto Network for organizing and spearheading this unconference.
