Montreal, December 16, 2019 – Launch, at the City of Montreal, of the Montréal 2030 Agenda for Quality and Exemplarity in Design and Architecture. This announcement by Mrs. Plante, Mayor of Montreal, represents a historic transition; a veritable, paradigmatic change for the future of Montreal. It is a transversal and inclusive foundation that builds on the quality and the knowledge in architecture and design with respect to environmental issues! By this innovative action and courageous commitment, the City of Montreal confirms the pertinence of the appointment of Montreal as UNESCO City of Design.
Let us recall that the UNESCO Chair in Urban Landscape was one of the key players that led, in 2006, to this recognition of Montreal by UNESCO.
