Organized by: Concordia

The panel comprises major stakeholders from energy, real estate, facility management corporations, and key actors from non-profits, municipal government, and community activist groups who will discuss approaches on how to catalyze the sustainable transformation of society. Within three discussion blocks, the panellists and attendees will focus on challenges, solutions, and methods for action to accelerate neighbourhood-level transformations. Within the discussion, the panellists will share insights and brainstorm about regulatory sandboxes, multistakeholder commissions, new governance structures and the potential of digital twins of cities that allow fast modelling of alternative scenarios to enable informed decision-making processes to realize pilot projects.
