Hundreds of thousands of visitors experienced sustainable design and practices put into action at Evergreen Brick Works! Our public markets serve as incubators for small businesses, we ran pilot programs in the Children’s Garden, and we got even closer to our target of becoming a carbon-neutral campus with the continued redevelopment of the historic kiln building.

Our Community Solutions Network hosted Idea Camps, Collision Days and Community Roundtables events across Canada to help communities navigate the smart cities landscape. Our focus included topics such as security, data, procurement, governance, and public engagement.
700+ summit attendees
