A National Forum showcasing innovation, diversity and partnerships, held virtually on October 26-27-28.
Toronto, ON (September 22, 2022) Future Cities Canada, the national cross-sector initiative led by Evergreen designed to accelerate innovation to transform cities, presents its 2022 must-attend program [Place+Space]: Powering Our Housing Future. The virtual gathering will bring together residents with companies and public sector innovators to engage on the latest solutions that create more resilient and affordable housing.
“[Place + Space] is an event that will connect today’s building innovation with people across sectors who need to take action towards more resilient and affordable housing in Canada.” says Lois Lindsay, Chief Program Officer at Evergreen. “We know that housing is so much more than a buildings with four walls. The Forum is a critical moment to build on our shared ambition for the future of housing to create inclusive, regenerative communities where everyone can thrive.”
According to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, we need 5.8 million new homes by 2030 to tackle the affordability crisis. To plan our housing future, we need big ideas now. What are the latest technologies and solutions to build homes quickly and sustainably? What makes a welcoming home and community? How can we reimagine housing to support an inclusive and resilient future?
“We hope all attendees will bring ideas forward and leave feeling positive for change with our affordable housing and regenerative living goals.”
[Place+Space] provides an important meeting place with several exciting sessions and networking channels to spark partnerships and create opportunities from across the country and around the world. Themes include:
Anti-Racism, Diversity, and Inclusion
