Addressing Calgary’s Wicked Challenges


Calgary’s future is being considered on Friday this week by experts and vested interests from across the landscape.

“We are a young city. We are a distant city. We are a city prone to both drought and flood. If we don’t build to respond to those, one of these three things will no longer be in the equation” says Julie Pithers, Business Development Manager with DIRTT.

How can we create the city of the future? One of the highlights of the upcoming Future Cities conference is its focus on solutions to some very real challenges.

“Urban sustainability is fundamentally a design problem requiring a common vision and collaboration” says Doug Leighton with Brookfield Residential.

Over 100 delegates will be participating in Calgary’s Future Cities conference this Friday at the Enmax Conservatory at the Calgary Zoo.

Delegates will enjoy local food sourced specifically for the event focused on sustainability and the future, and be inspired to action on some of Calgary’s most wicked challenges.
