From 2018 to 2021, Evergreen, Future Cities Canada (FCC) and partners across sectors from coast to coast to coast came together to shape our cities for the better at the annual Future Cities Canada Summit. Over the years, we explored such themes as smart cities, housing and placemaking. The aim of the Summit was to accelerate innovation and collaboration for action across the city-builder ecosystem, with an intention to identify gaps and emerging areas of focus to advance a vision and strategy towards inclusive and regenerative cities in Canada.
In 2020, we quickly pivoted to a virtual forum in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic also gave us a lens through which to examine our communities’ growing problems.
Last year, [Place+Space], Evergreen’s national housing forum, brought together over 500 residents with companies and public sector innovators to engage on the latest solutions that create more resilient and affordable housing
This year, Evergreen is taking the same spirit of cross-sector collaboration and innovation to the Evergreen Conference to focus on public space.
