Ecocity World Summit 2019

We wanted to send some information about our upcoming Ecocity World Summit. We’re hoping it could be included in Local Events for Business in Vancouver and Construction in Vancouver.

BCIT and the City of Vancouver are very excited to co-host the next Ecocity World Summit in Vancouver on October 7-11, 2019 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West.

The Summit is one of the longest-standing and globally significant forums for addressing the complex challenges facing humanity in a rapidly urbanizing world. An academic portion (including workshops and field trips) is scheduled for October 7 and 8th, and the main summit program will be held October 9th to 11th.

The conference is expected to attract over 1,000 innovators and pioneers, designers and planners, policy makers and administrators, professionals and business people, real estate developers and green building experts, environmentalists and developers, and students and teachers from around the world. The theme of the conference is ‘Socially Just and Ecologically Sustainable Cities’. http://ecocity2019.com/theme-vision-and-goals/

Along with sustainability leaders from around the world, we are excited to announce that our headline keynote speaker is Paul Hawken - environmentalist, entrepreneur, author and activist who has dedicated his life to environmental sustainability and changing the relationship between business and the environment.

We hope that you can participate as delegates, exhibitors, sponsors and more.
