Making a Difference at 2019 Ecocity World Summit

Earlier this week, the CRC Research team attended the Ecocity World Summit in Vancouver. Since 1990, this international summit has addressed building cities in balance with nature. With over 1,000 delegates from around the world, presenters shared research and innovations on urban design, bio-geophysical conditions, socio-cultural features, and ecological imperatives. We attended a number of sessions and also gave four presentations.

Our main goal was to communicate the urgency of acting immediately on climate change and to inspire people to make a difference. We have enough science, information and technology to address this unprecedented issue. From the micro to the macro, there are many steps that we can take.
