Like many other large cities in Canada, Vancouver declared a climate emergency in 2019. Its Climate Emergency Response soon followed, with six targets—or “Big Moves”—to tackle emissions related to transportation and transit, heating and hot water systems, buildings and new construction, and carbon sequestration for local ecosystem restoration.
Thank for listening to Lindsay’s inspiring webinar and fruitful discussion after. Here is the recording for those who missed it and her presentation too.
On Wednesday 4th November at 13:00 EDT we have the next in our series of Associate webinars. This time we will be hearing from Lindsay Cole, co Founder of SSG and now Operations Manager with CityStudio Vancouver, with some brilliant work in between (see her bio below). The session will be informal with plenty of discussion about Lindsays approach and work.
Lindsay is a co-founder and former director with SSG, that left to take a position as the Greenest City Planner with the City of Vancouver. Upon completion of that planning and public engagement work, Lindsay moved to the Vancouver Park Board to lead the implementation of the Greenest City plan for that organisation. Her work included scoping and planning “Rewilding Vancouver: an Environmental Education and Stewardship Action Plan” for the Park Board, as well as the initial resourcing and implementation work. She is now the Operations Manager with CityStudio Vancouver, and is still connected to the Rewilding Plan (amongst other) City of Vancouver priorities. She’ll be briefly presenting the Rewilding Strategy, and looks forward to a lively discussion.
Green Building audio tours have released our latest podcast that guides listeners through our project for community supported housing with Portland Hotel Society in Vancouver, BC. SSG Director Jeremy describes our contribution and sustainability of the 139 unit development for vulnerable people alongside Jeff West from Portland Hotel Society. Features include a rooftop garden, a high efficiency Airstack heating system, heat recovery units in the ventilation system, and a solar hot water array and 80% waste diversion rate during construction.
