City of Vancouver Volunteer Opportunity~Public Space and Public Life Study


City of Vancouver
Volunteers Deadline Jan 30
The City of Vancouver is conducting a Public Space and Public Life (PSPL) Study in partnership with Gehl to collect ‘people data’ to better understand how people use and spend time in Downtown Vancouver. The PSPL Study’s findings will be used to inform a Downtown Public Space Strategy and help bring the strategy from vision to action. Volunteer tasks include behavioural mapping, pedestrian counts and intercept surveys.
Volunteer survey shifts are on February 1 and February 3. Shifts will be four hours long between 8:00am and 8:00pm. You are welcome to participate in more than one shift.
Required training will take place on January 31 at UBC Robson Square (Room C300) from 7:00 to 9:00pm.
Volunteer for the Places for People Downtown
Public Space & Public Life Study
Required Training: Wednesday, January 31, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Location at UBC Robson Square – 800 Robson St. – Room C300
Survey Shifts: Volunteer survey shifts are on February 1 and February 3. Shifts will be four hours long between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm. You are welcome to participate in more than one shift.
Update -The winter phase of the PSPL study will span forty different public spaces across the downtown – from plazas to streets, beaches to laneways, and everything in between – contributing to a comprehensive study of how public life functions in Vancouver’s downtown neighbourhoods.
This is a great way to learn about Gehl’s approach to urban planning and design and play an active role in future changes to the public realm in Downtown Vancouver. Volunteer tasks include behavioural mapping, pedestrian counts and intercept surveys.
Please be prepared to dress warm and be outside for the duration of your shift. You will be assigned your study location at the required training session on January 31.
