Moving forward in economic development and sustainability, technology and healing.
Ontario is on the cusp of a new wave of suburban growth as millennials seek affordable communities to settle in and raise a family. Most millennials, however, certainly those who migrated to inner cities for work and an urban lifestyle, want something more than the suburbs of their parents and grandparents. They want backyards and walkable neighbourhoods. This session will discuss how to bring urbanity, along with sustainability and affordability, to Ontario’s future suburbs, and how communities can be designed to be more diverse, affordable and sustainable. The conversation will be framed by laying out the challenges of creating truly urban greenfield communities and showing how it can be achieved.
