Evergreen

This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Evergreen

Evergreen is a national environmental charity whose mission is to inspire and enable action to green cities. CityWorks is Evergreen’s newest initiative, which is focused on building more livable, resilient cities. CityWorks engages citizens and stakeholders to create demand for policies that enable us to build the infrastructure our cities need.

John Brodhead brings extensive experience in policy development and the government sector to this multifaceted role. Evergreen was awarded this grant to assist John with travel to Germany and Holland to learn best practices in Tower Renewal, so that he can articulate the case for Tower Renewal and champion the concept to revitalize Toronto’s aging tower communities. This experience helps John position CityWorks in a global context, ensure that the projects in Toronto are reflective of best practices in urban sustainability and infrastructure from around the world, and are designed to encourage resilient and healthy cities.
