Civic Symposium: The IAAF World Championships 2021 from a Social Perspective” with Niels de Vos.

4:30 -6PM

Free Event in the Barrel Room

Join us for a conversation with Niels de Vos, CEO of Oregon21 LLC, about the social implications of the IAAF World Championships coming to Eugene on August 6 - 15, 2021.  With two years left to plan, 50,000+ visitors and 2,000+ athletes from 214 countries expected to visit, not every question has an answer yet.   Niels will provide us a 10,000 foot perspective on:

  • How local communities be impacted?

  • What social issues could be positively affected?

  • What negative outcomes have other locations experienced (and how to avoid/prepare)

  • How can we get involved?

A cheese/charcuterie/baguette spread will be provided along with a no-host wine bar.
