The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) 2016 International Green City Conference and Tour will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia. AIPH, in partnership with the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA) is putting together an event that will provide delegates a chance to see innovations in urban green infrastructure and planning first hand.
The international audience will learn about the importance of incorporating green design in urban development. The goal of the conference is to equip delegates with the tools to support their local green city efforts. During the week, they will discover why urban greening is so important, how to achieve practical and affordable solutions and then experience it in action on a day and a half of tours.
“Vancouver aims to become the greenest city in the world by 2020,” said Karen Tambayong, Chair of the AIPH Green City Committee. Toe conference will also be held in conjunction with the AIPH spring meeting, the European Landscape Contractors Association spring meeting and the CNLA Landscape Canada Summit.
