Event Details

The 7th Active House Symposium will be held for the first time in North America in Toronto on September 16- 17 at Evergreen Brick Works.  Active House is an European building practice that is based on a balanced and holistic approach to building design and performance.

The vision of Active House is to encourage buildings that create healthier and more comfortable lives for their occupants without negative impact on the climate- moving towards a cleaner, healthier and safer world.  The vision defines highly ambitious long-term goals for the future building stock.  It proposes a target framework for how to design and renovate buildings that contribute positively to human health and well-being by focusing on the indoor and outdoor environment and the use of renewable energy. The building is evaluated on the interaction between 3 core principles: Comfort – the indoor climate conditions, Energy consumption and impact on the Environment.  The event will bring together industry professionals to cultivate an arena of conversations and education surrounding sustainable building design.

There will be up to 10 hours of Continuing Education and OAA structured learning credits available for the attendees.  For more information and to register at
