Grey to Green Conference

Start on May 8th 2017. End on May 10th 2017

Senior levels of government continue to overlook the many benefits of investing in living green infrastructure such as urban forests, green roofs and walls when making infrastructure decisions. Join us to shape a healthier and more resilient future with green infrastructure.

Explore the latest in performance, economic valuation, design, policy, and technology from Canada, the US, and worldwide. This interdisciplinary conference is the leading forum for designers, policy makers, manufacturers, growers, landscapers, and other green infrastructure professionals to discuss the benefits and growth of the green infrastructure industry.

Grey to Green also includes a trade show, cutting-edge workshops which include tours of outstanding Toronto projects, and exceptional networking events. This year, be one of the first to learn about the City of Toronto's new Green Streets Guideline and the Province of Ontario's new Stormwater Design Guidelines.
