Climate Resiliency: Global Problem, Local Solutions
October 22nd to 24th, 2019
Seneca’s Green Citizen 2019 Symposium
This first day noted speakers Elizabeth Hendriks from National Freshwater Programme at WWF–Canada and Caitriona O’Sullivan and Amy Buitenhuis from the City of Toronto’s Office of Emergency Management, made very exciting and informative presentations.
Second day of symposium started with Matthew Tokarik passionate about Passive House construction and in the afternoon followed by Dr. Cecilia Rocha talking about Sustainable Food Systems.
Third day was concluded with very inspirational talk by David Miller, ex mayor of largest city in Canada, Toronto, President and CEO of World Wild Life Canada and chair of the very influential C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group.
In the morning noted speaker Lisa King, Senior Policy Planer of City of Toronto, was speaking about integrative sustainable principles and strategic planning policy in the city.
We really enjoyed this symposium expertly organized by Andrew Wickham, Project Manager, Seneca College, School of Environmental and Civil Engineering Technology with assistance of Mr. Andrew Hoang, Energy Training, Faculty of Continuing Education. Master of the ceremony was again this year our founding member William [Bill] Humber.
Whole event was generously sponsored by TD Insurance.
In the next few days we will be adding links in our resources section to some of the websites mentioned in the speeches, with very informative issues and data.
