Future Cities Canada: The Summit reimagines back-to-school and back-to-work

Free virtual one-day gathering features TD Future Cities Speaker Series on the future of learning – Wednesday, September 22, 2021

This month Future Cities Canada, the national cross-sector initiative designed to accelerate innovation to transform cities, presents its next series of discussions on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 focusing on changing needs of education and culture of work. The one-day free virtual event is part of Future Cities Canada: The Summit, a monthly program led by Evergreen and hosted by Future Cities Canada, that brings together urban thought leaders, private- and public-sector innovators, and community leaders to showcase the what’s-next in creating more resilient communities of the future. The TD Future Cities Speaker Series entitled Back to School: Future of Learning features a powerful discussion from those on the frontlines both inside and outside of schools on how student-centered approaches to education can build resiliency and generate a sense of community that extends beyond school.

“We know that what we do next will determine our future cities and generations,” said Geoff Cape, Founder & CEO, Evergreen, one of the founding partners of Future Cities Canada. “Our September Summit, featuring the TD Future Cities Speaker Series, explores important conversations on how we can advance learning and how we work in ways that support our physical and mental health of ourselves and our communities.”

“TD is pleased to support the TD Future Cities Speaker Series through our global corporate citizenship platform, the TD Ready Commitment. Building liveable and resilient urban spaces where innovation can thrive is one of the ways we’re working towards a more inclusive and sustainable tomorrow,” said Janice Farrell Jones, Senior Vice President, Sustainability and Corporate Citizenship.
