Imagine living where your commute to work is congestion free, where you’re always intuitively interacting with your surroundings, accessing amenities and social resources with ease, and at the end of the day, retreating to an affordable place you’re proud to call home.
In the Imagining Canada’s Future Cities Event Series, the University of Waterloo is bringing together panels of academic and industry thought-leaders to dive deep into the work being done today to create cities that will serve and benefit generations to come.
The Imagining Canada’s Future Cities Event Series is proudly sponsored by Waterloo’s Affinity partner for home and auto insurance - TD Insurance Meloche Monnex.
Thank you to our event series moderator and panelists
Moderating each discussion, Jean Andrey, Dean of the Faculty of Environment and Chair of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) Canada will provide insights into Canada’s commitment to achieving the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
