Description

The Swedish city of Vaxjo is collaborating with the Canadian city of Burlington, Ontario on a range of sustainable development issues including meeting carbon neutral targets, green buildings, creating complete communities, improving stormwater management and supporting business development opportunities between the two cities.

Implementation

Växjö and Burlington have been able to use the IUC programme as a platform to learn and exchange ideas. A number of bi-monthly webinars have been held on low carbon development, stormwater management and wood building construction. Both cities are involved in the delivery of each webinar and alternate taking the lead.
