Did you know we are surrounded by renewable energy? Whether it's green transportation, energy efficient buildings or an urban farm, it's just a question of taking another look around. Join Ruth and Chris from SPEC's Energy Committee in exploring a diverse array of renewable energy assets at Olympic Village and let's discuss how far down to road we are for a zero fossil fuels future.
Tour dates for 2019:
All tours begin at 11am at the Olympic Village Canada Line skytrain station for a 75 minute free walk, ending at the Creekside Community Centre (1 Athletes Way, Vancouver).
If you have been on SPEC's Solar Panel tour and are hungry for more technology, or if you are interested in learning about passive design, LEED certified buildings, and wastewater thermal energy recovery, this tour is for you!
Our first tREX tour of the summer on May 4th, 2019 will be a part of Jane's Walk. Jane’s Walk is a community-based approach to city building that uses citizen-led walking tours to make space for people to observe, reflect, share, question and re-imagine the places in which they live, work and play. They walk cities to honour and activate the ideas of Jane Jacobs. More about Jane's Walk.
