Protect your Melon: Snow Sport Helmets – Round Two will continue the discussion from the 2009 Café Put a Lid On It. Warm drinks and light refreshments will be served at Café style tables designed to set an “après ski” ambiance. A local media celebrity will introduce our panelists: Alison Macpherson, York University; Brent Hagel, University of Calgary; and Shelina Babul, University of British Columbia who will discuss the research related to helmet use, from both an engineering and behavioural perspective. This will be followed by a short Q & A from the audience, before breaking out into a World Café style discussion of powerful questions that will tap divergent thinking and allow for generation of collective wisdom.
