The Summit has a program packed with more than 60 concurrent sessions, public keynote sessions, and keynote sessions. All included in the registration fee!
Design Charrettes are not included in registration packages. Additional charges are required, except for the Angus Development Corporation charrette. To participate, please indicate your choice on the Ecocity World Summit registration form.
Please be advised that given the large number of registrations received for the design charrettes, registration to these activities will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis, with priority given to those who have paid in full. Since availability is limited, we encourage participants wishing to attend these activities to make their payment as soon as possible.
Room 520 A
Participate in this design charrette and learn more about the integrated design process. Participants will create a development project together as a multidisciplinary team with a team leader acting as moderator.
The charette’s theme will be revealed at required preparatory meeting on Thursday, August 25, from 10:15 to 11:15. It will be based on a development project for a Montréal location. This meeting will also introduce the integrated design process and discuss any of the project’s specific requirements or restrictions.
The charrette is open to all Ecocity 2011 participants (students and professionals).
Room 525 AB
This bilingual, multidisciplinary design charrette will involve participants in real, urban planning projects happening in Montréal. It will focus on street-level development and aim to create ways for the City of Montréal to achieve certain goals:
- Increase biodiversity and greening in central neighborhoods
- Create green infrastructure networks
- Reduce the urban heat island effect
- Encourage walking by creating comfortable, safe sidewalks
- Reduce car dependence by further developing public and active transportation networks.
The charrette will produce a range of ideas for urban design and project implementation (partnerships, strategies for project completion, and long-term management).
The charrette will focus in particular on walking and green neighborhoods. Four departments from the City of Montréal who are responsible for these projects will lead the session.
DEVELOPING THE HEART OF TECHNOPÔLE ANGUS
Activity organized by the Société de développement Angus (Angus Development Corporation)
Thursday, August 25, 1:00 pm
Free of charge
Registration date: June 1
Limited number of spaces available.
Participants will be selected on the strength of their applications.
All persons who completed the registration form will be notified of the decision by email.
The Société de développement Angus (SDA), a non-profit development corporation, applied sustainable development practices to a brownfield site to create what is now Technopôle Angus. An urban business park, it hosts more than 50 businesses and close to 2,000 professionals. The SDA is now looking to develop the last, vacant section of the park.
Project focus: 400,000 ft2 (37,000 m2) available for innovative development.
Main criteria: job creation, mixed use, animation and quality of life, sustainable development, and ecomobility.
This charrette is an opportunity for the SDA to take their sustainable development approach even further and, more importantly, propose inspiring urban development avenues to the international community. The SDA invites architects, developers, urban planners, and urban sociologists concerned with green neighborhoods and ecological developments to come to this selective symposium and share their views on the project.
