Waterfront Summit — New Venue!

The Globe and Mail Centre, 351 King Street E. (Google map and directions)
Friday Oct. 27, 7-10 p.m. – Saturday, Oct. 28, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Friends and members of YQNA are invited to Toronto’s first Waterfront Summit. This unique event will bring together stakeholders from across our city’s waterfront – from Etobicoke to Scarborough. Together, we will hear from thought-provoking speakers and work on solutions to urgent issues facing our waterfront.

Experts and organizations ranging from community groups to governmental and business interests will share their waterfront passions, goals, and stories in panel discussions and workshops. This is where you can take part in shaping waterfront history.

The Waterfront Summit has been moved to The Globe and Mail Centre due to a strike at George Brown College. See the keynote speakers and workshops, and reserve your spot today – click here to RSVP!

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Talk: City Building on the Waterfront

Ken Greenberg, Toronto’s great innovator of urban design, will give a unique presentation at YQNA’s next meeting with the title “City Building on the Waterfront.” For over three decades, Ken has shaped downtowns, waterfronts and regions across North America and Europe, in cities such as Toronto, Amsterdam, New York and Paris. He has a prominent role in our own Waterfront neighbourhood, where we enjoy the results of his holistic approach and long-term view of planning. Ken and his wife Eti are often seen here on their bikes or in kayaks. Ken’s book, “Walking Home: the Life and Lessons of a City Builder” expresses his philosophy that cities may be big, but they are enjoyed on a human scale.

We are honoured to welcome Ken Greenberg, and invite you to attend this free event:
