Background:

The Sustainable Spaces Dialogue aims to bring engaged citizens and knowledgeable professionals together to discuss the ways in which urban space is viewed, used and shaped within the City of New Westminster.

As a growing city limited by available space, New Westminster must think of innovative ways in which urban space can be used.

During the Sustainable Spaces Dialogue, presenters will address strategies in which urban spaces are used and imagined within the city, and will consider opportunities for these spaces to change and grow in ways which promote sustainability and livability for all residents.

Between speakers, the floor will be open to questions and discussion. Attendees will be given the opportunity to respond to ideas put forth by panelists and to offer their thoughts. Thinking about how we use the space we occupy should not be left solely to local governments. While their role is important, it is up to citizens to act in ways which benefit themselves and their community. The City of New Westminster and those who call it home have the opportunity to shape the space they occupy.

This event is being organized by Colin O’Neil with support from the RSBC.
