Last week I was delighted to take part in the excellent Wood at Work 2018 conference. My thanks to Forests Ontario for the above photo of me at the end of the stage quickly taking as many notrs as possible. By the end of the 2 days my notes were over an inch thick. This is certainly a conference to attend if you are involved in specifying or using wood.
I really enjoyed catching up with the ever engaging, and one of our most intelligent commentators on archictecture and sustainability, Lloyd Alter. I highly recommend that you visit his website – www.treehugger.com – I promise you will find it one of the most useful resources in North America.
Earlier in October I had the great honour of speaking at the Greenbuilding Festival 2018 organized by Sustainable Buildings Canada. This show is already scheduled for October 8 2019 at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre. I highly recommend this event too.
For me it is incredible to be given the opportunities to speak at these powerful gatherings and to meet researchers, scientists, builders and entrepreneurs who are committed to building a sustainable way for humans to live here on Earth. It can be done. Watch this space.
