On February 3, the City of Vancouver hosted a discussion and invited everyone to engage in developing an ambitious Climate Action Plan as we enter the new decade. The event featured inspiring talks by local experts in public health, academics, community leaders, and more. Connect is also proud to have one of our projects featured – New Brighton Park Wetland Restoration – as an example of what is currently being done to address the challenges we face in a changing climate.

As designers of the built environment, we share the privilege and responsibility of protecting and enhancing our connection with the environment through meaningful design. From restoring fish and wildlife habitat on the North Shore, to capturing stormwater runoff in rain gardens at YVR’s parking facilities, to creating beautiful riverside walking trails on Richmond’s protective dike network, Connect is looking forward to continuing our efforts to make inspiring places for people that also serve as powerful green infrastructure for the future.
