Calgary's Round Tables on Sustainability provide an opportunity to explore the Built Environment pillar of imagineCalgary, and more specifically tackle one of the key challenges identified at the 2013 P2S Conference: "How do we create complete communities and address energy poverty, reduce high costs and time loss of transportation, and advance innovation and social well-being in our communities?" The upcoming Conference is intended to be a showcase and a solution-harvest to address challenges of moving towards sustainability in the built environment.
On June 19th, 2015 from 8:00am – 8:00pm, we will convene approximately 125 urban design and planning professionals, government decision makers, and community leaders to harvest solutions to our wicked development problems through the exploration of development, transportation, housing, and energy consumption in future sustainable cities.
Featured Speakers: Ward 9 Councillor Gian-Carlo Carra, Doug Leighton from Brookfield Residential, Michael Pepper with Section 23, Alderman Druh Farrell, Brian Breukleman with WSP, and many more! Visit our Meetup Site to learn more HERE.
