Join us on Tuesday, June 28th, from 10:00am - 11:30am PST or 1:00pm - 2:30pm EST, for a conversation on the co-benefits of climate action.
Places+Spaces, a newly developed modelling tool, promises to break new ground on sustainable development decision-making for municipal and regional governments. As the first of its kind in Canada, this comprehensive new computer-based platform allows users to input various development factors including buildings, transportation, energy, water and land-use, economic and employment, education and healthcare. They are then integrated to calculate their interdependent relationships to produce various sustainability scenarios.
We just led a virtual conversation on the co-benefits of acting on climate change. The e-audience included a mayor, a municipal councilor and a researcher from Scotland in addition to researchers and practitioners from across the country. While we didn’t get into the results of Brexit, many ideas about the co-benefits of acting on climate change emerged.
