The Lower Mainland LGA and CivicInfo BC hosted CivX 2019 on Thursday, November 28th, 2019 at SFU Wosk Centre’s Asia Pacific Hall on 580 West Hastings Street in downtown Vancouver.
CivX events are an idea exchange for anyone within the BC local government sector. The 2019 event focused on civic engagement. Speaker topic areas included “Using Technology to Connect Marginalized Populations”, “Encouraging Women to Get Involved in Local Government”, “Tips for Local Governments on Welcoming New Canadians” and “Engaging Young People/Youth & Sustainability”.
The event provided an innovative discussion with thought-provoking speakers and an interactive moderated workshop on creating inclusive and civil cities.
