Green Infrastructure: Jobs, Health and Community Resilience

Grey to Green is taking place in downtown Toronto from May 15-16 and will highlight new policy, design practices, and innovative products in the green infrastructure sector. Across Ontario the sector employs more than 150,000 designers, manufacturers, conservation officers, engineers, contractors and maintenance professionals who work on urban forests, bioswales, green roofs and walls, wetlands and more. Don’t miss Toronto’s most engaging green infrastructure event of the year. Learn about various types of green infrastructures and their importance in our cities.

Green infrastructure has a tremendous range of benefits to offer our communities and yet it continues to be underepresented, underfunded and underutilized by governments around North America. 

The Grey to Green Conference features the latest research, industry developments, and end-users to share, learn and network. Attend concurrent sessions and networking events with industry leaders,  attend training courses and workshops, and participate in tours across the GTA.

“The Grey to Green conference is a fixture in my timetable because the program delivers world-class speakers on an emerging economy that should have a higher profile given its economic, social and environmental benefits. The conference is a great energizer for the believers.”
