Heritage: A Driver of Sustainability

Location Info

Canada’s 150thanniversary inspires us to think about the past, present and future of heritage in Canada and in the Capital.  Can what we value as heritage in our communities, architecture and public spaces help us to shape a more sustainable future?  This is an issue we face every day in the capital, and is one that is being discussed by the international community in the context of United Nations sustainable development goals.

We’re kicking off Heritage Week  with a conversation among several distinguished speakers on this essential link between heritage and sustainability.

Our guest speakers include:

  • Jean Carroon, Goody Clancy Architects, Boston and author of Sustainable Preservation: Greening Existing Buildings
  • Mark Brandt, MTBA Architects and lead author of Building Resilience, Practical Guidelines for the Sustainable Rehabilitation of Buildings in Canada
  • Brenda Odjick, Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg
  • Heather Thomson, Manager, Heritage Program, National Capital Commission (moderator)

Attendees will have the opportunity to address their comments and questions to our expert panel.
