Next Thursday, April 24 I’ll be part of the respondent panel for Global City, Global Citizens, a Forum organized by Vision Vancouver. The event will take place at the Vancouver Public Library and will begin at 7.30 p.m.
Global City, Global Citizens will cover a range of international issues that Vancouver faces in the 21st century.
Moderated by Geoff Meggs the Forum will open up with a presentation by Michael Byers, professor at the Liu Institute of UBC, author of Intent For a Nation. (Taylor Owen and I wrote a review of Michael’s book in Embassy Magazine – you can read the Embassy version here, or an extended version on this blog.
After Michael’s presentation, I and Monica Urrutia – of the Philippine Women’s Centre – will offer a response. Discussion will then open up to the public.
If you are interested in the event I hope you’ll come down and join us.
