The City of Vancouver has set a bold goal for itself: to be the world’s greenest city by 2020. But while the metrics for what makes a city livable—public transportation, access to quality education, cultural amenities—are easy to come by, what makes a city “green” is a little less clear. In this event eight speakers make the case for their vision of what it means not just to be green, but the greenest city in the world. Speakers include: Michael Ableman, Geoff Dembicki, Charles Gauthier, Sadhu Johnston, Mitra Mansour, Christine Mclaren, Gordon Price and Christianne Wilhelmson. Moderated by David Beers, founder of The Tyee.
