About Ouri Scott:
As one of the first Indigenous women to graduate from the UBC’s Master of Architecture program, Ouri is driven to resolve prevalent, yet often unaddressed design issues that face First Nations people across Canada, and around the world. As a designer, she looks to develop a modern language of architecture that reflects and responds to contemporary First Nations culture. Her most recent work includes an award-winning concept for a net-zero, mixed-use development in Seattle that incorporates renewable energy strategies and intensive vertical farming. As a proud member of the Tlicho First Nation, Ouri works with First Nations communities across western Canada in her work.
David Ramslie, Sustainability Planner (Integral Group)
With over a decade of experience in the green building industry, Dave is a leader on urban sustainability issues and policy. As a pragmatic problem solver and a highly engaging public speaker, Dave has presented his findings to a variety of audiences. Dave has demonstrated his forward-thinking nature through the execution of many significant local projects, including new environmental requirements for the 2013 Vancouver Building Code, the strategic development to the City of Vancouver’s Corporate Carbon Strategy and the development and authorization of the Green Buildings Rezoning Policy.
