Sep, 22 2020
12:00 pm - 3:45 pm

The Canada Green Building Council are excited to share the latest updates on the new online program for Canada’s premier green building event, CaGBC’s Building Lasting Change (BLC), kicking off September 2020 during World Green Building Week.

Reimagined as a dynamic real-time virtual event, Building Lasting Change 2020 will feature interactive online programming over five half-days in September and October, with three additional stand-alone live webcast symposiums later in the fall.

The new theme of “Ready, Set, Recover” will focus on the unprecedented opportunity for the green building industry to offer actionable solutions and help reignite Canada’s economy following a global pandemic. To achieve Canada’s climate change commitments in this critical decade for climate action, the entire building sector must accelerate and scale up our collective impact to provide healthier, low-carbon, and resilient places to work, live, and learn.

Reigniting Canada’s Economy

As governments and industry consider Canada’s pandemic recovery, they will decide where to target increased spending and investment. Green building offers the most actionable solutions and can reignite the economy.

Bonus: it will likely reduce waste as staff and management begin to keep a close eye on purchasing cycles.
