In an effort to make meetings more accessible to a wider set of researchers, scientists and practitioners, the Quadra Centre has turned to an online platform and will assist in organizing and facilitating virtual meetings, gatherings and small conferences. Meeting organizers have options that include hosting break-out groups; pre-recorded plenary sessions; and video archives of their events.
If you are interested in hosting a virtual meeting through the Quadra Centre we encourage you to “Pitch a Meeting” through our website. Once approved, you will be assigned a Quadra Centre staff person who will assist in all logistics leading up to, and post, the event.
Since formally opening the Quadra Centre in October 2019, the Centre has been offering meeting space for groups of experts who wish to generate ideas that touch on our core values through scientific, community and governmental collaboration. Through our affiliations with the Hakai Institute, Universities, First Nations, and various governments we see issues, disciplines and seemingly unrelated themes where we can help to build bridges through these forums.
Kimberley Ney, who operates the Centre on behalf of the Tula Foundation noted that “Creating a virtual space to facilitate collaboration among the international coastal scientific community, seemed like a natural evolution for the Centre. We are currently working with a number of partners to ensure that their work continues throughout this unprecedented time.”
