The eco-neighbourhood of today, the city of tomorrow
Are you concerned about the future of your city? Just like climate change? France has been running its national “Ecoquartier” programme for a decade now, designed to bring together civil society, developers and municipalities so that new developments contribute to the energy transition while promoting social equity.
In Quebec, Écoquartiers projects such as the Angus Technopole are the exception rather than the rule. But now there is a unique opportunity for Lachinois and other Montrealers to redefine the city of tomorrow. Indeed, the Office de consultation publique de Montréal (OCPM) will hold a public consultation prior to the future Lachine-Est project (more than 50 hectares and more than 4,000 units).
It is in this context that six community organizations have joined forces to invite you to the “Lachine East Summit”. This conference, on the theme of “The eco-neighbourhood of today, the city of tomorrow”, will draw inspiration from best practices for the future development of Lachine-Est, while laying the foundations for a future Montreal eco-neighbourhood development program.
This event will take place on Saturday, March 9 from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm in Lachine. A dinner will be served to participants and a networking cocktail will conclude the event.
You will be able to hear more than twenty guest speakers, including Alain Jund, Deputy Mayor of Strasbourg, in charge of urban planning and energy transition, President of the French National EcoQuartier Commission and Christian Yaccarini, President and CEO of the Société de développement Angus.
In the afternoon, you will have the choice between the following 4 thematic workshops (one of which is in English):
1: Sustainable mobility, TOD and densification
2: From the eco-building to the entire district
3: For a Montreal eco-neighbourhood charter
4 : Toward a real ecodistrict (english workshop)
