Our Vision for The Living City CampusThe Living City Campus Tour

... A Link to cutting edge thinking, technologies & initiatives
... Practical demonstrations on how to integrate green community building projects into our daily lives
... A Place of local, national and worldwide significance
... A Destination to visit, to learn, and enjoy time and again

Nestled in an oasis of nature, The Living City Campus will inspire people from all over the world to live more sustainably. From renewable energy to green buildings to new technologies and sustainable transportation, visitors will experience the latest in green living, inspiring change in how we live, work and play today for a healthier tomorrow. The Living City Campus grows out of Toronto and Region Conservation's vision for healthy urban environments and The Living City.

The quality of life on Earth is being determined in rapidly expanding city regions. Our vision is for a new kind of community, The Living City, where human settlement can flourish forever as part of nature's beauty and diversity.

The Living City Campus will attract a diverse audience from business leaders to technical experts to members of the community. Currently, TRCA attracts over 100,000 visitors to the Kortright Centre for Conservation alone. We would expect that number to at least double as the campus begins to grow over the next few years and increase as the various programs and buildings are implemented.
