2013 Green Building Festival to focus on eco-districts
March 26, 2013 | By HPAC Magazine
The concept of Eco-Districts is taking shape across disciplines as designers, planners, developers, builders, and policy-makers adopt new approaches to urban revitalization and district-scale sustainable development. At the Daniels Spectrum, the Green Building Festival’s new venue at the heart of Toronto’s Regent Park social housing complex revitalization project, speakers will identify opportunities and explore best practices for the creation of Eco-Districts in Canada and beyond its borders. Plan to join Sustainable Buildings Canada on October 3, 2013, for a day of ideas and discussions on how to scope, design, develop, and manage an effective eco-district. Continuing education units will be offered. Take an eco-district survey and enter to win a free festival pass. For more information contact GBF@sbcanada.org.
