Grey to Green: A Conference on the Economics of Green Infrastructure - Designing for Health

500 0

Overview

Grey to Green is at the cutting edge of design and policy practice, and will showcase more than 75 leading thinkers and doers across a diverse range of fields which reveal the intersection of health and living green infrastructure. The multi-disciplinary program is packed with fantastic project case studies, useful design and analytical tools, and cutting edge research.

Designers, engineers, policy makers, developers, utility managers, conservationists, healthcare professionals, horticulturalists, contractors, urban farmers and academics, all share important opportunities to advance the social, economic and ecosystem health of our communities by utilizing living green infrastructure. Urban forests, green roofs and walls, bioswales, rain gardens, meadowlands and wetlands all provide fundamental human, ecosystem and economic health benefits.

Running from August 25-26, Grey to Green will bring to light many of the important scientific, design, economic and policy advancements in the living green infrastructure field. Learn from project case studies and research from across North America from Atlanta to Jacksonville to Seattle and more. Many featured projects are in Toronto, from the new Corktown Commons and the research facilities at the University of Toronto to the developing Toronto Pan Am Games Athlete’s Village. These projects are pushing the boundaries of integrating green infrastructure design for multiple benefits.
