Gehl is conducting a Public Space and Public Life Study in partnership with the City of Vancouver to collect ‘people data’ and better understand how people get around and spend time in downtown Vancouver. The study will inform a Downtown Public Space Strategy and potential test projects to bring the strategy from vision to action.

This is a great way to learn about Gehl’s approach to urban planning and design and play an active role in future changes to the public realm in downtown Vancouver.


For the first survey, shifts will take place on Thursday, September 14 and Saturday, September 16 with a mandatory evening training (with snacks!) on Wednesday evening, September 13.
Shifts will be four hours and take place between 8am and 8pm.


Multiple locations across downtown Vancouver. Please be prepared to be outside and on your feet for the duration of your shift. You will be assigned your location by the project team and notified at the training event.
