CaGBC will incorporate the Emerging Green Professionals (EGP) Innovation Challenge into the conference, offering CaGBC members who are 30 years or younger, have joined the industry within the past five years, or are full-time students a chance to speak at the sessions. Four of the challenge’s successful applicants will be given 10 minutes to pitch their most innovative, viable, and sustainable idea, then receive feedback from experts. Applications have closed, and the successful EGPs will be notified in April.
