Rethinking Sustainability

UBC - Rethinking Sustainability

GRAND is proud to sponsor Rethinking Sustainability symposium featuring a broad range of stimulating expert speakers. The underlying philosophy of this conferece is that trying to change human behaviour to achieve our sustainability goals is not enough. Instead, we should focus on developing new technologies that are both environmentally friendly and improve our quality of life.

Highlighted at the symposium will be a large-scale multidisciplinary approach to sustainability: the ICICS/TELUS People & Planet Friendly Home. This research initiative embraces the symposium philosophy by developing a suite of new technologies that are user-friendly across multiple generations, affordable, and allow for seamless transition as technologies evolve.

The symposium will be held on April 24th and 25th at two locations:

April 24 (6:30pm – 8:30pm)

Vancouver Playhouse
600 Hamilton St, Vancouver, BC

April 25 (8:00 am– 4:45 pm)

UBC Robson Square
800 Robson St, Vancouver, BC
