Livable Cities Forum: From Intention to Implementation
Join us for the 2023 Livable Cities Forum
Gain insights on leading edge energy transition and climate adaptation practices to build resilient, equitable, and livable communities.
Most Canadian cities and towns were not built with a vision of a net zero, resilient, and sustainable future. So what does the transition to resilient, equitable, and livable communities look like? How can we embrace diversity and inclusion in the process? And, ultimately, how can we accelerate implementation to keep pace with challenges municipalities face? Join us September 25 to 27 to explore these questions through the lens of “Intention to Implementation”.
A word from our 2023 partners and platinum sponsor
This year’s LCF is hosted by the City of Mississauga in partnership with ICLEI Canada and the Canadian Urban Institute, and is sponsored by Co-operators.
“The City of Mississauga is excited to host the 2023 Livable Cities Forum – Moving from intention to implementation. Adapting to climate change and ensuring environmental sustainability is a complex task that requires the effort and experience of everyone. We all have a role to play in building more vibrant, livable and sustainable communities and I look forward to welcoming you to Mississauga for this exciting opportunity to share knowledge and experiences as we work towards a low carbon and resilient future for all.”
Mayor Bonnie Crombie
City of Mississauga
“As an organization that works with communities across the country, ICLEI Canada is in touch with municipal, climate, and sustainability practitioners on a daily basis. We hear about successes and challenges — about initiatives that yield results and barriers that impede progress. The Livable Cities Forum is an opportunity for local leaders and practitioners to hear about these as well, exchange ideas, and find solutions.”
Megan Meaney, Executive Director
“We know Canada must take bold action today to improve our resiliency in the face of climate change — which is already upon us and is sadly poised to worsen. We’re proud to work in partnership with ICLEI to assemble the kind of creative, imaginative and committed multistakeholder collaboration we need. Through the Livable Cities Forum, we can help bring a whole-of-society approach to life, where communities, residents, asset owners, governments and investors work together to build a more resilient future.”
Former Mayor of Edmonton and Executive Advisor, Climate Investing and Community Resilience
“As we emerge from the pandemic, we are now presented with accelerated social, economic, and technological upheavals. Nowhere in this country is this more evident than in our cities, which have driven Canada’s innovation capacity for six decades. The recovery of the country depends on our cities emerging stronger, more equitable, and more resilient. Our cities need rapid, locally informed, regionally coordinated, and nationally supported solutions more urgently than ever. The Canadian Urban Institute is proud to partner with the Livable Cities Forum to foster the necessary exchange of innovative ideas and actionable plans between leading policymakers, urban professionals and on-the-ground practitioners, to help build more dynamic and equitable cities.”
