Science on Tap: Earth Day Edition

April 19, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Celebrate Earth Day with us as we are joined by Gonçalo Pedro, Ph.D. and Ryan Danks, B.A.Sc., P.Eng. from RWDI, a world-renown climate and performance engineering firm, headquartered here in Guelph. In an increasingly urbanized world with a climate that’s quickly becoming more extreme, adapting how we live and work is more important than ever. This has put a spotlight on the resiliency of our buildings and the cities they are in, as well as pressure to reduce carbon emissions. RWDI’s specialists Gonçalo Pedro and Ryan Danks will explore how individual buildings and even whole communities can be optimized for resilience and efficiency from the earliest stages of design. Learn how RWDI helps design teams craft comfortable outdoor spaces that enhance walkability, lower embodied and operational carbon emissions, and deliver innovative renewable energy projects. Explore the range of technology employed when studying these complex issues and understand the future of our cities. (Tickets by donation)
