2022 Resiliency and Regeneration Recording Package

All of the sessions were very well done. I appreciated the practical information and concise nature of the sessions.

I also appreciated that it was a virtual event, otherwise I would not have been able to attend.

Learn about Resiliency and Regeneration from an exceptional list of experts in sustainability. Discover where we are today and how we can learn from the past to complete the sustainability goals we need to protect our future.

I enjoyed hearing from different presenters and projects. For a virtual event, it was well organized and engaging. It was a great way to gather information on how the Region can possibly cater businesses when it comes to sustainability such as water efficiency.
