Urban Sustainability Forum at Willamette

Urban sustainability will be highlighted in a panel discussion at Willamette University Thursday, Nov. 9, at 11:30 a.m. in Cone Chapel on the second floor of Waller Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

The panel discussion will examine urban sustainability in Vancouver, B.C., and its applications to cities large and small around the globe. Lance Berelowitz, author of "Dream City: Vancouver and the Global Imagination," Anthony Perl, director of the Urban Studies Program at Simon Fraser University, and David Ramslie, green building planner for Vancouver, will share experiences, insights and obstacles they have encountered along the continuing path to sustainability in Vancouver.

This Convocations event is facilitated by Willamette's Office of the Chaplain and Willamette students, and sponsored by the University's Public Policy Research Center and Canadian Studies program.
