VANCOUVER, B.C., Mar. 08 /CSRwire/ - Less than a month after the Olympic flame departs Vancouver, business, government and non-profit leaders will gather to ignite three days of discussion and debate at GLOBE 2010, being held March 24 to 26 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

As host city for the 2010 Games, Vancouver has played a significant role in the development of green building principles, practices and policies. The city will act as the backdrop for discussion between experts from around the world who will showcase major initiatives that are underway to create new 'eco-cities' and rebuild existing urban areas to become more livable and sustainable.

Great cities don't just happen by accident. They develop over time based on decisions made at critical points in their evolution, often guided by an overarching vision or plan. How are cities evolving to ensure that they develop in the most sustainable way? What are the process tools and technologies that can help cities function better, improve the quality of life for their citizens, and reduce their environmental impact? What will the city of the future look like?

The GLOBE Foundation is proud to showcase The Urban Infrastructure Revolution - a series of forward thinking discussions focused on:


  • Eco-communities: Designing a Sustainable Future

  • Energizing Our Cities

  • Green Infrastructure: Sustainability At Work

  • Smart Cities: Connections For the Future


And the featured Future of Cities Dialogue, lead by Gregor Robertson, Mayor of Vancouver, Host City of the 2010 Games.
