Volunteer for Places for People Study

Enthusiastic about public space? On September 14 and 16, the City of Vancouver will conduct its first ever Public Space and Public Life Study with the support of Gehl - Making Cities for People, a global leader in people-centred urban design.

To complete this work, the City is looking for volunteers to help collect "people data" to better understand how residents and visitors get around and spend time in Downtown Vancouver. The research will provide insight into what people like about public space, how they use it and why. Public life surveys will be conducted in September and again in January 2018 to capture seasonal variations in public life.

Volunteers are invited to participate in both surveys. To sign up as a volunteer, email placesforpeople@vancouver.ca before September 8.
