Elevation 2.0 - SS-37: Urban Forestry & Material Carbon Emissions

July 07, 2022 | Posted byPublié par : CIP | 2.0, Elevation

Guiding Urban Forestry Policy into the Next Decade: A Private Tree Protection & Management Toolkit

This presentation will introduce a toolkit that explores tree protection and management in mid-size municipalities. It identifies bylaws, programs and strategies being used to protect trees on private property, and includes specific Ontario case studies highlighting the successes and challenges of different approaches. 

Why Embodied Carbon Matters to Planners

This presentation will explain what material carbon emissions are, why they matter to planners, what barriers exist to integrating their consideration into planning processes, and what actions planners can take to reduce them. It will use the City of Nelson and its work to reduce material carbon emissions as a case study for how planners can help reduce consumption-based emissions. While there is no panacea, we aim to offer planning professionals insight into work currently being done on this topic, and inspiration on how to tackle the overwhelming task of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
