KEYNOTE
TALKING TO STRANGERS
1 AIBC | HSW

We are undergoing a crisis of social isolation. A data driven understanding of how the built environment supports or inhibits social interaction is needed. In Vancouver, there are many groups beginning to tackle this issue from different perspectives. The talk will outline the importance of the topic,

some of the approaches being taken in this region and how those conversations are

interacting with each other.
