Eco Jam returns on April 20, 2023

Smith + Andersen has announced the return of Eco Jam to Toronto. The industry event, held annually with a hiatus over the past two years, features a benefit rock concert showcasing the musical abilities of professionals in the architecture, engineering, and construction fields from the GTA.

The event promotes sustainability and is held annually during Earth Week to raise awareness of its significance in the Canadian construction industry, including the preservation of Canadian forests. Since the event’s inception in 2013, it has helped plant over 15,000 trees through direct donations to Forests Ontario. All proceeds from Eco Jam 2023 will be donated to Forest Recovery Canada, a division of Forests Ontario.

Several previous performers and bands will return to the stage, and Lesley Smith and Bill Michoulas have joined the organizing team, bringing additional potential to the event’s tenth anniversary.

The upcoming Eco Jam event will feature performances by musicians from companies including BDP Quadrangle, B+H Architects, Bird Construction, CS&P Architects, Diamond Schmitt Architects, EllisDon, Entuitive, Hariri Pontarini, HOK, Arcadis IBI Group, In Studio Creative, Kirkor Architects and Planners, Montgomery Sisam, Smith + Andersen, University of Toronto and Zeidler.
