Sprawl Speaker Series

Sustainable Vaughan announces the first installment of The Sprawl Speaker Series.

This public lecture series is intended to inform Vaughan citizens about the City’s draft Official Plan. Find out how the city intends to allow urban sprawl to continue and what this will mean to you. Speakers will offer their insights on the effects of sprawl and propose alternatives as to how our city can become sustainable.

The headline speaker for the inaugural talk will be Dr Faisal Moola. Dr. Moola is Director of the David Suzuki Foundation’s Terrestrial Conservation and Science Program. He is a practicing scientist and has published widely in scientific journals on many topics in the areas of wildlife biology, conservation, and environmental policy.

Dr Moola has conducted research in some of Canada’s most significant wilderness areas, such as the great northern boreal forest, the old‐growth rainforests of British Columbia, and the Acadian woodlands of Atlantic Canada. He has also been a university lecturer, and is currently an adjunct professor in the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Forestry.

The talk will be held on Thursday June 10, 7pm to 9pm at the Velore Village Community Centre, Activity Room 4. To find out more please email sustainablevaughan@gmail.com
