FROM INTENTION TO IMPLEMENTATION
September 25 to 27, 2023
2022 Livable cities forum
Livable Cities Forum: Conversations for an Inclusive Future was held in Victoria, BC from October 3 to 5, 2022. The event brought together more than 300 delegates from across Canada and the United States over three days of workshops, training, networking and hands-on learning opportunities. Over 100 speakers, facilitators, workshop hosts and panelists shared their perspectives on how to prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion while advancing climate action.
The 2022 LCF focused on the theme of “Conversations for an Inclusive Future”. Throughout the three-day event, delegates discussed important synergies between efforts to address social vulnerabilities exposed through the pandemic and efforts to increase climate resilience and achieve net-zero in communities across Canada through an equity lens.

The 2022 program focused on how to integrate equity and inclusion into action on climate change mitigation and adaptation. Sessions were uniquely designed to go beyond presentation-style delivery, and included many interactive and engaging workshops, trainings, and discussion forums to offer networking and hands-on learning opportunities.
The welcome and opening plenary and multi-level government solutions plenary were recorded and are available to watch on ICLEI Canada’s Youtube channel. An interactive performance around the themes of sustainable cities and conversations for an inclusive future and short interviews with guest speakers can also be watched online.
The 2022 Livable Cities Forum program offered perspectives from more than 100 speakers, facilitators, workshop hosts, and panelists from across Canada. Speakers shared stories, innovative ideas, and lessons learned on the program themes and engaged in thoughtful, valuable dialogue with delegates.
