Join us as we discuss how the term Vancouverism came to be globally recognized, what came together to make it possible, where we are today and most importantly, the next chapter of Vancouverism - where do we go from here. From the man at the centre of it all, Larry Beasley will share experiences and insights as highlighted in his book Vancouverism, about the urban philosophy which has shaped Vancouver into a global city celebrated for its beauty, livability and sustainability. We will also discuss our current challenges, what is needed to overcome them and possible solutions and opportunities to re-imagine the new Vancouverism

  • What is Vancouverism
