Speaker series

The Toronto waterfront is a massive work in progress, and people want to know more about it.  Waterfront for All is therefore launching a Speaker Series.  We'll feature informed interesting speakers about every two months.  At least to begin with, we'll meet on Zoom.  Our initial meeting will be March 10, at 2 pm.  (Please RSVP on our events page to get a Zoom link). We chose the afternoon time slot to accommodate one of our speakers, Urbanist Ton Schaap of Amsterdam, who has a six hour time difference.  Please join us!
