PROGRAM

 


 

The 2018 Ontario Climate Symposium will explore how the development of positive, innovative, interdisciplinary visions can facilitate a transformative cultural shift toward low-carbon communities, sustainable adaptation and the adoption of green infrastructure and design in cities.

Our programming aims to foster a collective discussion on urban landscapes and highlight the interconnection of policy, public health, urban planning, climate change adaptation and mitigation and urban growth.

WE’LL BE POSTING MORE INFORMATION ABOUT OUR PROGRAM IN THE WEEKS TO COME. STAY TUNED!

Don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter if you’d like to receive symposium updates and other OCC news.
