“LCF is a fantastic forum for gaining insight on leading edge practice amongst local governments on sustainability and climate action. You’ll meet and learn from local government leaders, as well as folks representing innovative non-profit and consulting agencies who can support you on your climate action journey. Highly recommended!”
– Ian McVey, Manager of Sustainability, Regional Municipality of Durham
“I have had the opportunity to attend the Livable Cities Forum several times throughout my career, both as a presenter and attendee. Each time I have come away from this conference with new learnings that I can apply to my own projects, new friendships with colleagues from across Canada and am reinspired to continue to push for climate action within my municipality. I look forward to attending again this year in Victoria, BC.”
– Trisha Henderson, Climate Action Officer, Town of Oakville
“The LCF conference that I attended was very well organized and I walked away with so much to share with my colleagues. One thing I found really useful from the LCF specifically was the different styles of workshops. I found that they delivered a variety of hands on workshops that I could adapt and bring back to my work. It is also very inspiring to be in a room with so many people that are dedicated to climate action. The conference gives you the opportunity to meet other people doing similar projects and helps inspire action.”
– Amy Coomes, Project Manager, City of Thunder Bay
“I had the pleasure of working with ICLEI and other partners to host LCF in 2016 in Halifax. It was an impactful conference with great study tours and networking opportunities along with excellent learning. I’ve attended other LCF conferences and have always found them immensely valuable and enjoyable!”
– Shannon Miedema, Director, Environment & Climate Change, Halifax Regional Municipality
“The sessions, networking, and events leave me full of inspiration and ideas for action.”
