Volunteer for the Places for People: Downtown Public Space & Public Life Study – SURVEY SHIFTS

February 1, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 8:00 pm

Required Training:

Wednesday, January 31, from 6:00 to 8:00pm. Location TBD

Survey Shifts:

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.




Gehl is conducting a Public Space and Public Life (PSPL) Study in partnership with the City of Vancouver 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.

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.

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.
