    Green Building Festival: "Resilient City: The New Urban Paradigm" (up to 3 non-IDCEC hours)

    The world is experiencing record-breaking extreme weather events with insurers paying $50 billion a year in weather-related claims, a figure that has more than doubled every decade since the 1980s. With increasingly variable weather patterns on the way - and as more climate-change-related challenges affect our cities and urban infrastructure - how can sustainable buildings, cities, and infrastructure improve urban resiliency and offer solutions to mitigate the impacts of extreme weather events?

    Join Sustainable Buildings Canada for an action-packed day focused on best practices to address climate-driven threats to our cities and sustainable planning, design, engineering, and building solutions.
