Event description
This event will focus on the utilization of green spaces to mitigate the effects of climate change and ensure resilience of urban areas.

About this Event

The NEM campaign strives to support diverse youth in making better decisions about a possible future in engineering & engineering technology professions. This year, the Seneca Environmental Association's NEM event will focus on exploring the roles that living systems play in our urban environment. Industry professionals from conservation authorities, municipalities, engineering/consulting firms, and NGOs will be invited to educate students about incorporating green spaces into urban planning and design to ensure resilience in the face of climate change. They will present their work in this field, participate in a panel discussion, and lead students through a workshop.

With your ticket, you will receive:

  • Free lunch, snacks, and refreshments
  • One ballot entered for a chance to win a raffle prize (one extra entry to be provided if you present your own reusable water bottle at registration on the day of the event)
