Event Description

Other Sights is pleased to present the final walk for the Grow project.


Please join Jason Packer, sustainability consultant with Recollective for a lively walk through the Olympic Village.  Jason will discuss the green features of the development and how these innovations reflect the changing landscape of sustainable design.  How can sustainability be built into our urban environments and enacted in everyday life will be explored in this walking dialogue.


About the presenter:


Jason draws on a variety of educational and work experiences in his role as sustainable building consultant. With an honours degree in Administration, a diploma in Building Technology and several years working in the building trades, Jason is dedicated to applying his experience to help develop effective green building strategies.


He has volunteered with a number of environmental organizations including the Lighthouse Sustainable Building Centre and is a member of the BC Sustainable Energy Association working to promote renewable sources of energy. Jason has worked on a number of LEED and Living Building Challenge projects and is particularly interested in LEED for Neighbourhood Development, urban design and community based solutions to environmental issues. Despite his fascination with sustainable buildings, technology and urban design, Jason is happiest outside in the woods.
