Oth­er Sights is pleased to present the final walk for the Grow project.

Please join Jason Pack­er, sus­tain­abil­i­ty con­sul­tant with Rec­ol­lec­tive for a live­ly walk through the Olympic Vil­lage.  Jason will dis­cuss the green fea­tures of the devel­op­ment and how these inno­va­tions reflect the chang­ing land­scape of sus­tain­able design.  How can sus­tain­abil­i­ty be built into our urban envi­ron­ments and enact­ed in every­day life will be explored in this walk­ing dia­logue.

About the pre­sen­ter:

Jason draws on a vari­ety of edu­ca­tion­al and work expe­ri­ences in his role as sus­tain­able build­ing con­sul­tant. With an hon­ours degree in Admin­is­tra­tion, a diplo­ma in Build­ing Tech­nol­o­gy and sev­er­al years work­ing in the build­ing trades, Jason is ded­i­cat­ed to apply­ing his expe­ri­ence to help devel­op effec­tive green build­ing strate­gies.

He has vol­un­teered with a num­ber of envi­ron­men­tal orga­ni­za­tions includ­ing the Light­house Sus­tain­able Build­ing Cen­tre and is a mem­ber of the BC Sus­tain­able Ener­gy Asso­ci­a­tion work­ing to pro­mote renew­able sources of ener­gy. Jason has worked on a num­ber of LEED and Liv­ing Build­ing Chal­lenge projects and is par­tic­u­lar­ly inter­est­ed in LEED for Neigh­bour­hood Devel­op­ment, urban design and com­mu­ni­ty based solu­tions to envi­ron­men­tal issues. Despite his fas­ci­na­tion with sus­tain­able build­ings, tech­nol­o­gy and urban design, Jason is hap­pi­est out­side in the woods.
