About the Green Building Festival
The Green Building Festival is Canada’s most comprehensive conference on green building design, operations, technologies, and materials. Since 2005, the Festival has brought together industry leaders from across the country and around the world to transform the building industry through educational presentations, technical training, and interactive workshops.

Living Building Challenge Keynote aims to inspire at 2012 Green Building Festival
At the 2012 Green Building Festival on October 11th & 12th, key decision-makers and opinion leaders in the sustainable building sector – including experts such as Jason F. McLennan, CEO of the International Living Future Institute, the Seattle-based hub for visionary green building programs, Edward Mazria, Founder of Architecture 2030 and developer of the widely-adopted 2030 Challenge, and Mario Cucinella, the renowned Italian architect who has won dozens of major awards in international competitions – will gather with a range of players from across the burgeoning sector at the beautiful Evergreen Brick Works – Toronto’s LEED Platinum ‘Centre for Green Cities.’

The new Ontario Building Code, Low-Impact Development Guidelines, and the move from prescriptive to performance-based standards are the timely topics that drive core programming at the 2012 Green Building Festival.
