Le nexus entre les bâtiments et l'infrastructure

Le Green Building Festival de SBC à la 1ère conférence nord-américaine SDEWES

Toronto juin 2024

PARTENARIAT DU CENTRE DE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OF ENERGY, WATER AND ENVIRONMENT (SDEWES)

Le Green Building Festival 2024

Le prochain Green Building Festival aura lieu en même temps que la 1ère Conférence nord-américaine SDEWES le mardi 18 juin 2024 et présentera à la fois des conférenciers principaux et des sessions de panel, (similaire aux années précédentes). Des stands pour GBF seront disponibles le mardi pendant le festival, et le logo, les éléments de marque, la signalisation, etc. seront fournis aux sponsors tout au long de la conférence SDEWES de 4 jours.

For 17 years, Green Building Festival (GBF) programming has showcased the most inspiring forces driving sustainable and resilient buildings and cities, grounded in credible research and proven projects. During 2023, we will focus on year-round profile opportunities with our partners while ramping up for our joint SDEWES and GBF conference in summer 2024.

Le Green Building Festival est l'un des événements 'incontournables' de l'industrie du bâtiment. Il attire une population croisée de professionnels de haut niveau de l'industrie du bâtiment, des architectes et des ingénieurs aux compagnies de services publics, aux décideurs politiques gouvernementaux et aux universitaires de premier plan. SBC s'associe avec le Centre de Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment (SDEWES) pour amener leur conférence SDEWES bien considérée en Amérique du Nord. 

Des opportunités de parrainage existent pour GBF et SDEWES. Le Festival et la Conférence offriront aux commanditaires une excellente occasion de présenter leurs propres idées, produits et services tout en démontrant leur engagement à promouvoir des bâtiments et des communautés durables et résilients.

Natalia Ortiz Moreno

Natalia Ortiz, student of Project Management Environmental (PME) program in Seneca Polytechnic, has an Environmental Engineering background completed at Universidad El Bosque in Colombia. She has always been involved in sustainability roles and projects that included Environmental Management Systems implementation, Water Treatment Systems’ design and operation, Hazardous and Conventional Waste management and minimization practices, as well as Ecosystem’s Conservation and Energy
Efficiency programs.

For the PME – Applied Project Management Course, Natalia developed a Green Roof Assessment Tool for Seneca Polytechnic’s Office of Sustainability, with the aim to provide green roof technology recommendations best suited to a particular scenario, taking into consideration multiple aspects of green roofs and buildings; infrastructure, design, materials, environmental factors, and costs, as well as the Toronto Municipal Code – Green Roof bylaw. Natalia also has a scientific journal publication as the main author of the project “Selection and sizing of industrial wastewater treatment units required at the
new maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) aircraft facility owned by Avianca S.A. in Rionegro Antioquia” in the El Bosque University Journal of Technology.

Natalia strongly believes there are several research topics left to be developed, and the importance of
working towards Sustainability from different backgrounds, knowledge, and cultures to build strong, productive, and resilient communities.
With the vision of growing cities and infrastructure along with nature, always preserving and respecting the ecosystems’ attributes and services, Natalia would like to keep researching and acquiring more experience in Sustainability roles.



Emily Smit

Emily is a second-year PhD student in Geography at the University of Toronto, and a co-operator of a small home renovation company, Magnus Home Improvements. Her research seeks to determine how single-family homes can quickly and best be retrofit to achieve Toronto’s emissions reductions targets – including net-zero by 2040 – as part of the TransformTO climate action plan. Specifically, she will assess the impact of municipal home energy reporting and disclosure programs, as well as produce recommendations for growing the retrofit labour force in ways that attend to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Further, her research seeks to understand how home retrofit activities can be regenerative and produce net-positive impacts for humans and the environment towards transformative, place-based sustainability. When not at her computer, Emily can be found cycling with her kids to and from school or making funky sounds on her analog synthesizer.

Bofa Udisi

Bofa is a sustainability professional with over seven years in the energy and environment industry. He has a Bachelor of Science in Energy and Petroleum Studies from Novena University in Nigeria and graduate certificates in Energy Management and Environmental Project Management from Seneca College in Toronto. In 2020, he graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Master of Environment and Business degree. He is currently a Ph.D. Candidate in the Building Science program at Toronto Metropolitan University, researching whole-life carbon reduction in new construction and building renovations.

Bofa‘s work experience is primarily in the built environment, working in the private and public sectors in roles that involve structural and environmental assessment of building structures, HVAC engineering design and sales, and facilities management. Bofa is a member of several industry associations, such as the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE), the American Society for Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and the Project Management Institute (PMI). SBC’s bursary will go a long way in supporting Bofa‘s research and his desire to learn.
