Are you a student or a new graduate who is interested in learning more about sustainability in the green building industry? Join CaGBC on May 29th for a high-energy half-day hackathon where you will have the opportunity to problem-solve a real-life issue currently being experienced: the high cost of living in Vancouver, and what it means for the youth and future generations who call this progressive city home.
Course participants will have the opportunity to take part in charrettes where they will examine new ideas surrounding sustainable urban development and emerging forms of housing, including elements relating to the needs of changing lifestyles and the concept of a sharing economy. Groups will report back at the end of the day, with the winning group members will be awarded free CaGBC education.
A “hack-a-thon” can be defined generally as an event which brings people together to creatively solve problems. Though shorter than a ‘typical’ hack-a-thon, CaGBC hopes this event will foster fruitful discussion among some of the most motivated and creative of individuals: students and young professionals. Participants will walk away with a fresh perspective on what can be done to better Vancouver’s urban center.
A pizza lunch will be included.
Time: 9:00AM to 2:30PM.
Location: Suite 180 • 200 Granville St
Vancouver, BC V6C 1S4
