The conference will be held May 15-16, 2018, at the Chestnut Conference Centre in Toronto.

From there, the conference’s advisory committee will evaluate the submission based on if it features the best practices, innovation, new information, practical learning opportunities and the opportunity for learning across sectors.

The Grey to Green conference is looking for proposals for presentations and interactive workshops that fall under the following topics:

  • Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation;
  • Urban Agriculture and Food Production;
  • Human Health and Biophilic Benefits;
  • Economic Benefits—Green Infrastructure Accounting & Asset Management;
  • Stormwater Mangement (Policies, Quantification, Design);
  • Energy Benefits / Urban Heat Island; and
  • Green Infrastructure Monitoring and Intervention using the Internet of Things.

Each proposal will receive a response by Feb. 1, 2018. The conference will be held May 15-16, 2018, at the Chestnut Conference Centre in Toronto.
