Mar 14 at 7pm – Climate Ready Cities: Data Driven Strategies for Resilience

This March 14th for CivicTechYYC we are hosting Button. They will be discussing about how bringing different data sets from a variety of locations can come together, and create meaningful tools that improve collaboration and resilience.

About Button:
“We help government and industry create better digital services for citizens through empathetic design. At our small consultancy in BC, everything we do is driven by curiosity, transparency, and impact on citizens.

We are in the process of developing ClimateTrax, a GHG emission inventory tool that aims to improve how governments and industry collaborate towards their emissions reductions goals for 2030 and beyond. We are excited to share about the three areas of data emissions focus that ClimateTrax will address for governments, including buildings data, transportation attribution, and solid waste.”
