Far more Canadians live in cities rather than rural areas today. Major centres continue to grow rapidly, dominating our lives and encountering many challenges.
Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson joins the Salt Spring Forum for a wide-ranging discussion about the city he leads and the role—and future—of large urban centres in Canada and around the world.
What is the role of city governments in addressing environmental, health, and housing issues? Why do so few people live rurally and what does this mean? What can we learn from cities?
Seize the opportunity to join Gregor Robertson in discussion, who is the mayor of one of the world's “greenest” cities that is on track to be 100 percent reliable on renewable energy by 2050!
