Sustainability & Innovation: The Future of Toronto's Waterfront
Will Fleissig, President & Chief Executive Officer, Waterfront Toronto
Downtown Toronto is facing significant urban challenges, including the imperative to lower greenhouse gas emissions to address climate change, and the increasing disparity in housing affordability. New innovative models and technologies show strong potential to be deployed rapidly, and at scale, to address these challenges and enable livable and sustainable urban communities.
Waterfront Toronto aims to create showcase opportunities for innovative solutions for inclusive housing, improved energy conservation and carbon reduction, resiliency, job growth and design excellence. The revitalization of Toronto’s waterfront is the largest urban redevelopment project currently underway in North America, and is one of the largest waterfront revitalization efforts ever undertaken globally.
The Toronto 2030 District invites you to our 2nd Annual Town Hall reception with Will Fleissig, President & CEO at Waterfront Toronto, to learn about the future of Toronto's waterfront, and how the organization is embracing sustainability and innovation to address these important urban challenges.
Reception Opens: 5:15pm
