Canada’s 150thanniversary inspires us to think about the past, present and future of heritage in Canada and in the Capital. Can what we value as heritage in our communities, architecture and public spaces help us to shape a more sustainable future? This is an issue we face every day in the capital, and is one that is being discussed by the international community in the context of United Nations sustainable development goals.

Kicking off Heritage Week  with a conversation among several distinguished speakers on this essential link between heritage and sustainability.
