Green Skyline '09: Tour the future of the built environment

Join us on Cascadia’s third annual tour of innovative green buildings throughout North and West Vancouver. The tours demonstrate to the public and industry what green design, construction, and operations look like. Tours of green buildings will be held in North and West Van on the afternoon of Sunday, September 27th.

Green Skyline serves to showcase sustainable building achievements and provides the public an opportunity to see a variety of ways in which buildings can achieve LEED and other high performance standards. You'll be able to take with you a better understanding of innovative green features and systems.

Click here for more tour details, including tour schedule, maps, and photos of the buildings.

Also join us for our free wrap-up party from 3:15-5:00 on the Southeast False Creek seawall!  Mingle with the building experts and owners from the day's tours, other green building professionals, and the interested public.  The wrap-up party will also feature performances by Orkestra Silvovika and the B:C:Clettes.
