Live in Montreal Tonight at 7pm

If you are in Montreal and would like to hear me speak, tonight is your chance!

I'll be giving a talk called "Exceptions that change the rules." I'll be using stories from cities in Canada, the US, and South Africa to look at how municipalities and communities go beyond marginal changes and help create what I'm calling "deeply sustainable" cities.

 i.e. cities that do more than make minor tweaks around the edges and start to get at more transformative and innovative goals.

It will be at 7pm, Oct. 3, at the Westmount Public Library (4574 Sherbrooke O., Westmount).  All the details are also in the poster (.pdf)

Thanks to everyone who came out last night. It was a full house and a great audience.

Also a big thank you to Maureen Lafrenière for coordinating the event.


This is a blog for news and views on the future of sustainable cites. A major revamp is in the works. Until then I am keeping this version up as an archive of my past writing.

You can expect occasional updates, but not with the same frequency as in the past.

You can also find my writing on urban redesign and sustainability in ReNew Canada, The Mark, Sustainable Cities Canada, WorldChanging, and other more specialized academic publications.

Info on my consulting work, c.v. and current research focus is all here.
