The goal of Day of IMPACT is to showcase the many diverse ways a community encourages sustainable and regenerative business practices, supporting and supported by both residents and visitors to the region.

The ideas we share are chosen to spark change and be emulated in other communities around the world. Hear from folks in the tourism industry who have been successful in implementing sustainable and regenerative business practices, sharing their challenges, and their mitigation strategies. Return home inspired and armed with resources and connections to make a difference where you live. In fact, all participants are encouraged to share their own best practices, so that the learning is as broad as it is enriching.

To minimize the carbon footprint and can learn, and engage in conversation and some gamification, we are thankful to Grey Line Tours, OMCA, and City of Toronto for allowing us to be escorted together on one coach throughout our journey. Joining us to engage in an innovate guided experience, customized for IMPACT is Peter Odle from The Urban Guide

At IMPACT  Regional Ontario 2023 we had the benefit of learning from Dolf Dejong, The Toronto Zoo, how by Changing the Narrative, small actions can accomplish big things.  We will get to visit behind the scenes and see some of these learnings in action.

Followed by a visit to the Indigenous Cultural Centre at Rouge Conservation Park, Parks Canada largest park in Canada.  We appreciate the engagement of Parks Canada and Indigenous Tourism Ontario in providing this experience.  Nourished by the picnic lunch provided and inspired by the Culinary School of our home based of Centennial College.

We will then weave our way down towards the City Centre, where we will make a stop or two, to discover, unique and unexpected ways that the City of Toronto is embracing sustainable practices.  Our destination is Arcadia Earth.  Arcadia Earth offers a multi-sensory journey that showcases the beauty of our planet and highlights the impact of human actions on the environment.  Through immersive technology, augmented reality, projection mapping, and virtual reality, you can reimagine how small, tangible lifestyle changes can positively impact our world.  

Each stop along our way, supports an initiative.  Chooose, World Wildlife Foundations, PhoneApes.

We will then share our journeys enroute back to the hotel, where you can continue the conversation and perhaps select one of the many sustainable restaurants within proximity to the hotel.  Looking forward to you sharing your Day of Impact with us.
