Memorial Lectures

The Jim Green Foundation co-hosts the annual Jim Green memorial lecture in conjunction with the SFU Vancity Office of Community Engagement.

Jim Green’s personal legacy of nearly 1,000 social and affordable housing units in the city’s Downtown Eastside stands as an enduring challenge to today’s housing advocates. How does Green’s record look from the perspective of those who live in the buildings he was involved in developing? How important was his philosophy of affordable housing, with planning led and directed by future residents? And what lessons do today’s housing activists need to pursue to make similar gains today?
