Depaving: A New Way to Change Cities from Grey to Green
This is an online event
401 Richmond St W, Toronto, ON M5V 3A8, Canada
There is a new movement afoot in communities across North America. Communities are coming together to remove unwanted pavement and creating vibrant green spaces. The hands-on depaving process captures the hearts and energy of volunteers who work together to make schoolyards and neighbourhoods more livable and resilient. In her presentation, Alix will tell us more about the depave movement, and indicate what one needs to get involved in this important greening initiative.
