Green College and the Global Civic Policy Society present "Sam Sullivan's Public Salon: Inspiring Ideas," on Wedneday, November 7 at the Vancouver Playhouse Theatre (Southeast corner of Hamilton and Dunsmuir Streets) from 7:30 pm - 9 pm.
Green College is offering a limited number of complimentary tickets to the UBC community. Contact to secure your ticket.
Former Vancouver Mayor, Sam Sullivan, hosts another season of salons featuring short presentations by Vancouver's leaders and thinkers on ideas they think you should know about. Mr. Sullivan’s goal is to present a cross-section of the most interesting people in Vancouver and the ideas they have about our city. These outstanding individuals will speak for seven minutes each on subjects they are passionate about. Among them is the Principal of Green College, Mark Vessey, who will share the long and colourful history of the historical buildings Green College occupies and his experiences in running an interdisciplinary graduate college at UBC.
