Guided Tours

The Living City Campus is set apart from many sustainability centres by its natural setting.

Situated on 325 hectares of woodland, the site features many Living City Labs and demonstration sites, showcasing the latest research in renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable building design.

Nestled among protected forests, fields, rivers and wetlands that support a rich diversity of wildlife, The Living City Campus brings nature into the urban sustainability equation.
