Green Infrastructure Conference Call for Proposals

The 8th annual Toronto Grey to Green Conference is currently looking for presentation and workshop proposals to be presented at the event on May 28th, 2020.

Grey to Green explores the intersection of ecology and infrastructure and how we can further integrate natural systems into our built environment. The benefits of doing so range from stormwater management to improved health and wellbeing. The conference brings together the industry’s leading professionals to share green infrastructure research findings, design projects and policy case studies. The goal is to help inform the current policy debate by making the case for a rapid and significant increase in green infrastructure investment.

This year’s Grey to Green Conference will explore the benefits of green infrastructure and determine their economical or biophysical value, a crucial step in expanding the use of these technologies. Topics of interest for presentations include, but are not limited to:

  • Green Infrastructure and Climate Change Adaptation
  • Urban Agriculture and Food Production
  • Urban Agriculture Zoning Policies
  • Health and Biophilic Benefits
  • Stormwater Management
  • Economic Benefits
  • Urban Heat Island Effect
  • Environmental Racism and Social Justice
