Heart of the City is hosted by Park People (@Park_People ) an independent charity that supports and mobilizes people to help them activate the power of parks to improve quality of life in cities across Canada.
Keynote speaker Jerome Dupras is both bassist for the band Les Cowboys Fringants and an academic focused on quantifying the economic value of nature and biodiversity. His scientific work was recently recognized by the Government of Quebec when he received the Quebec Emerging Science Award. He continues to be involved in several conservation and greening projects, including being Co-Founder of the Green Belt Movement and spearheading the planting of 375,000 trees for the 375th anniversary of Montreal.
