Yellow Friendship Bench

Stressed out already?

Check Carleton’s new yellow friendship bench that was recently installed in the Quad. It is a visual reminder to encourage students to speak openly about mental health issues which we all can relate to!

“The bench is the first of several to be installed at schools across Canada this year by Canadian non-profit The Friendship Bench. The initiative is a tribute to Lucas Fiorella, a second-year Carleton robotics student who took his own life last October after suffering silently with depression.”

DGES Professor Fraser Taylor, recent recipient of the a Killam prize,  and distinguished research professor and director of the Geomatics and Cartographic Research Centre, will be giving a presentation at the Main Branch of the Ottawa Public Library, Wednesday, April 23, 2014

His presentation, organized by the Ottawa Public Library and the Ottawa Society for the Arts and Sciences, is entitled I Map therefore I Am: Recent Developments in Cartography in the Age of Location.

The impact of location on all aspects of societal activities is now so great that a strong case can be made that we are entering the “age of location.” Cartography is an old discipline, but as a result of technological change it is becoming increasingly central to the new challenges facing society. New forms of maps and mapping are emerging, such as cybercartography, in response to these new challenges.

Where: Main Branch, Ottawa Public Library, 120 Metcalfe St. (corner of Laurier Ave.), Auditorium
When: Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.
