Urban Solar Sponsors Ecocity World Summit

Held in Vancouver, the Ecocity World Summit is one of the premier international venues for researchers, policymakers, urban planners, and civil leaders to come together to find creative solutions for a more sustainable future. With representatives from over 75 countries, the summit focuses on the intuitive and responsible integration of nature and the urban environment, with a particular interest in creating cities and communities where citizens can thrive.

It’s these values that make this event so exciting to us at Urban Solar, where our commitment to innovation and environmental sustainability have been central to our operations since the company was founded. As a proud Living Wage for Families Employer, we’re always looking for ways in which our company and our work can make our communities, and our planet, a better place to live.

We’ll be supporting this year’s Ecocity World Summit, held in Vancouver, B.C., as a Silver sponsor, and can’t wait to get involved, meet like-minded individuals and organizations, and share our visions for more sustainable and livable cities.
