Victoria 2030 – A Generous Living City, an evening with Jason F. McLennan

Wed Mar 20, 2019, Victoria, BC

Spend an evening with Jason F. McLennan - one of the leading thinkers in the global green building movement today.

Victoria 2030 is a provocative look at the state of urban planning, architecture, the environment and community design as society hurtles past 2020 (the year of perfect vision) to the year 2030.

This decade may come to be known as the Decade of Acceleration where intersecting trends ranging from technological innovation, climate change, and population collide in profound ways. What does this mean for Victoria as 2030 approaches?

Come prepared to be challenged, informed, entertained and maybe get a bit pissed off… It’s only the fate of the human race at stake!
