U of T x TMU SEA: Back to the Future of Sustainable Urban Development

January 28 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm EST

Sustainable Engineers Association (SEA) University of Toronto and SEA Toronto Metropolitan University welcome you to our first in-person conference since 2020, the Sustainability Conference 2023! This event is sponsored by Climate Positive Energy and will take place Saturday, January 28th 2023, from 9:00AM -5:30PM. Breakfast and lunch will be provided as well as the exclusive opportunity to network with some of the top leaders and academics within the sustainability industry!

This year the theme is Back to the Future of Sustainable Urban Development. We aim to highlight initiatives, policies, and perspectives that positively impact sustainable urban living. To assist in creating meaningful dialogue, we will be presenting a variety of speakers, including research leaders and industry professionals from different backgrounds, to speak on topics surrounding green infrastructure, transportation, sustainability from an indigenous perspective and so much more.

This event is open to all undergraduate and graduate students, as well as industry professionals, who are looking to gain professional development experience and insight into the industries at the forefront of the shift to sustainable practices. Our hope is to give students from different backgrounds the opportunity to connect and converse with individuals who come from similar backgrounds, creating long-lasting relationships through which we can create a sustainable future together.
