					         INTRODUCTION TO THE CROSSROADS CONFERENCE



The Crossroads Conference is a new concept, a growing movement and a fresh approach to the
current social, environmental and economic concerns in the City of Vancouver. It is an exclusive
opportunity for students to cross paths for the first time with the social, environmental and
economic leaders of Vancouver.


The Crossroads Conference will be held at the Irving K Barber Learning Centre and the Hebb
Theatre at the University of British Columbia on Saturday, February 28th, 2009. It is a one-day
event that will last from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM.


Delegates can expect an enriching experience at the Conference. Peter Legge, one of Canada’s
most successful entrepreneurs and public speakers, will be our Opening Keynote Speaker.
Following, there will be a lunch break when delegates can network with others and the top
leaders in Vancouver. After lunch, delegates will take part in facilitated discussions, led by
members of our Honourary Board of Trustees on topics within their fields of expertise or
occupation.


Delegates will be given the chance to present their ideas and proposals during the Crossroads
Conference. Socials issues like drug addiction and homelessness, environmental issues like
urban sustainability and urban transportation, and economic issues like the Vancouver
Olympics 2010 and its legacy are just some of the issues that will be addressed.


The Crossroads Conference is your chance to bring about positive changes to Vancouver. It is
your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see your ideas become our City’s reality.
