International Green City Conference
Van hosts 2016's International greenest event
This March 16 - 18, Canada is hosting a world-renowned International Green City Conference in Vancouver, B.C. Delegates will attend a day-and-a-half conference, listening to influential speakers on the latest trends in green infrastructure, and tour green sites throughout the city.
By the end of the conference, attendees will have the tools they need to support or implement their local urban green initiatives.
Topics covered include the link between society and green spaces, an overview of the green roof and wall industry, storm water management techniques, and local as well as international green cities in action. After the conference, delegates will be offered tours to explore Vancouver’s greenest sites, as well as get a taste for the local culture.
The International Green City Conference is hosted around the world each year, giving delegates a chance to see innovations in urban green infrastructure and planning on a global scale. The 2016 conference is being organized by the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association and the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH).
