VANCOUVER, BC – Students and faculty from SFU, UBC and BCIT worked with City of Vancouver staff and community in partnerships through CityStudio Vancouver this past semester to co-create projects that were celebrated in our semi-annual project showcase. HUBBUB 14: The Digital Edition featured twenty-three projects co-created by 89 students together with 15 City of Vancouver staff addressing key priorities and challenges in the city including the Vancouver Plan, Climate Emergency Response, and more.
Visitors included City officials like Councillor Christine Boyle who shared questions and comments with all of the students who participated.
Through ‘liking’ on Facebook we facilitated a People’s Choice Award. The online format offered students the opportunity to share their work with their personal networks, reaching their friends, families, and beyond. The engagement was immense with close to 1,500 votes cast. The winner of the People’s Choice Award was a UBC group from the Faculty of Science: “The Success of the Pacific Herring Net Deployment in False Creek.” The students, Nathalie Buu, Denise Wang, Leon Yang, Kiana Yerxa co-created the project with faculty member Tara Ivanochko & Michael Lipsen, City of Vancouver staff Angela Danyluk, and the Squamish Streamkeepers.
HUBBUB 14: The Digital Edition webpage can be found on the CityStudio Vancouver website and maps all the course collaborations from the Spring 2020 semester as they relate to the City strategies they address. At each HUBBUB event we honour one City staff and one faculty member with our Champions Award because they have participated in at least five collaborations over the years and are truly committed to city-building in Vancouver and mentoring students. Faculty, City staff and special collaborators from the semester are featured on the Wall of Awesome.
