Park People is inviting Montreal’s city builders, park professionals, volunteers and community groups to attend two special public keynote presentations by Vancouver’s Rena Soutar and Montreal’s Jérôme Dupras.

Join us for two extraordinary keynotes connecting public space and reconciliation, science and environmental advocacy.

Catch the highlights of this great conference for just $10 per keynote or $15 for both.
