As one of the fastest-growing cities in North America, Toronto faces unique challenges when it comes to managing its urban environment. From extreme weather events to rising temperatures and air pollution, the impacts of climate change are being felt across the city. That’s why green infrastructure has become such an important tool in Toronto’s efforts to build a sustainable and resilient city.
Green roofs, in particular, have emerged as a key strategy for mitigating the effects of urbanization. By covering rooftops with vegetation, green roofs provide a range of benefits, from reducing energy costs and improving air quality, to enhancing biodiversity and creating new green spaces in densely populated areas.
Whether you’re a building owner, a landscape architect, a city planner, or simply someone who cares about the future of our urban environment, this conference is not to be missed. Join us as we explore the role of green infrastructure in building a more sustainable and resilient city for all.
