Event description

Description

Join us for our first General Meeting of the Fall. September is the time of year where we see an increase in students in our neighbourhoods and city as a whole.

Students provide a multitude of benefits to our city economically, socially, culturally and they create a vibrancy that just wouldn’t be there with out them. We also know that some neighbourhoods have challenges with some students and that not all experiences are positive ones. Hear from a panel of neighbourhood leaders, student representatives and Downtown London on how we can build on those strengths and manage the challenges together.

Schedule:
7:00pm - Doors open
7:10pm - Panel begins
8:30pm - Regular business portion of evening
9:00pm - End of event

Featuring four panelist including Jahmoyia Smith (Fanshawe Student Union President), Danny Chang (Western's University Student's Council - Vice President), Janette MacDonald (CEO of Downtown London) and Susan Jory Spindler (Blackfriars Neighbourhood Association).
