An invitation-only event which meets this year in Toronto, Meeting of the Minds brings together opinion-shapers, policy-makers and leading thinkers from every sector to advance the creation of more sustainable cities using smarter design tools, sounder environmental practices and cleaner energy systems.

International leaders who speak at the two day conference are innovators scaling-up practical urban innovation in infrastructure, design, technology, energy, transport, water and finance. From multiple disciplines and diverse geographies, these leaders share ideas and shape a common agenda — building more livable cities.
