126 views

Published on

Cities and towns are changing. Now, more than ever before, we are seeing more densely populated urban areas, changes in real estate development, shifts in societal values and behavior, and the rise of ‘smart’ technologies. These factors, paired with the need for social equality and environmental balance, present unique challenges and great opportunity for our communities. Futurist, Nikolas Badminton, will examine the trends innovating communities, improving the life of their inhabitants, and minimizing impact on the global environment. Exploring what these trends could mean for Canada, Nikolas will make some bold predictions to help inspire to think outside the box when imagining the future of construction and building happy, safe, and smart communities.
