Notwithstanding my rant about their sponsor, I still hope they will let me into the Green Building Festival on October 24 in Toronto. It is "a two day event focused on bringing green building to the mainstream. This year's program, Building Performance, Building Value looks at the real world impacts of green building." So many of the speakers have been on TreeHugger before:
- Barry Sampson is talking about the Thomas Wells Public School;
Gordon Stratford of HOK in Greening the Workplace;
David Sisam of Montgomery Sisam on The Impact of Urban Form on Public Health;
Luigi Ferrara on the World House Project;
and the keynote speaker is Avi Friedman on Sustainable Urban Planning.
Toss in an overview of the Equilibrium Houses and the solar suburban town of Okotoks and there is a full slate of TreeHugger goodies. ::Green Building Festival
