Call for Volunteers: SCARP Research on Public Life

Researchers at the School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP-UBC) are looking for volunteers this summer to support an innovative research project on Public Life and Public Space on the UBC Campus.

Our aim is to learn how people’s perceptions and behaviours might change when there are more people moving through and staying in a public space. We need volunteers to be actors in a public space - or just be themselves - for various times in the month of August 2018.
