Eastern GTA Eco Summit

Concurrent Sessions

The backbone of the Eco Summit since its inception, a selection of breakout sessions offer attendees the opportunity to hear UTSC faculty and community leaders deliver presentations on important environmental issues and community initiatives.  The sessions feature ample opportunity for attendees to discuss the issues and share their views on environmental matters in the Eastern GTA.  Each of the sessions will be taking place twice – once in the morning and once in the afternoon – so that registrants will be able to attend any two sessions.
