Victoria 2030 – A Generous Living City, an evening with Jason F. McLennan    Wed Mar 20, 2019, Victoria, BC

Spend an evening with Jason F. McLennan - one of the leading thinkers in the global green building movement today.

Victoria 2030 is a provocative look at the state of urban planning, architecture, the environment and community design as society hurtles past 2020 (the year of perfect vision) to the year 2030.

This decade may come to be known as the Decade of Acceleration where intersecting trends ranging from technological innovation, climate change, and population collide in profound ways. What does this mean for Victoria as 2030 approaches?

Come prepared to be challenged, informed, entertained and maybe get a bit pissed off… It’s only the fate of the human race at stake!

Jason F. McLennan
Troublemaker, Architect, Planner...mostly nice guy

Considered one of the most influential individuals in the field of architecture and green building movement today, Jason is a highly sought out designer, consultant and global thought leader.

He is the recipient of the prestigious Buckminster Fuller Prize (the planet’s top prize for socially responsible design), has been called the Steve Jobs of the green building industry, and a “World Changer” by GreenBiz magazine, and has been selected as the National Award of Excellence winner for Engineering News Record.

He has been selected by Yes! Magazine as one of “15 people shaping the world” and works closely with world leaders, Fortune 500 companies, leading NGO’s, major universities, celebrities and influential development companies, all in the pursuit of a world that is socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative.

McLennan Lives on an island near Seattle with his wife, three kids and two crazy dogs…and a bunch of chickens…
