Livable Cities Forum

ICLEI Canada’s annual event, the Livable Cities Forum is a boutique national event that brings together government, community, and industry leaders to offer an opportunity to learn, exchange, and raise awareness on existing and emerging areas of practice related to climate change and communities. The Forum provides an interactive peer learning space to explore how to build communities that are prepared for current and future impacts of climate change, while moving toward a more sustainable, healthy and equitable future. Through inspiring speakers, hands-on and fun workshops, multisector conversations, and site visits the Forum gives participants an opportunity to come together to understand and explore the connections between these concepts, share stories of best and promising practices, and build skills and tools for advancing work together.
