The way we are planning Toronto and the region is doing irreparable damage to our future and incremental changes towards “complete communities” are not enough. How do we make the massive shifts in how we build, finance, live & move around our cities to live within the earth’s carrying capacity? How do we do so in a way that protects the city’s most vulnerable? How do we make the financial case? What are the regional approaches required?

Join us on December 6th as Gregg Lintern gives the Chief Planner annual address, with focus on planning with a climate lens.
