We want to hear from you!

TISEDTalks Series

TISEDTalks feature both Canadian and international researchers on relevant topics of sustainability in urban planning, architecture, and engineering; attendance is open to all members of our community, professors, students and public, alike. The goal of TISEDTalks is to provide a forum where our members can meet other researchers as well as present their work, all in hopes of fostering potential cross disciplinary collaborations while engaging the broader McGill student and research community and highlighting the cutting-edge work done by our members in the area of sustainability.
