The Built Environment

The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community focuses on transforming lives through engaging, educating and empowering people. Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales, we excel in bringing the right people together to create long-term, practical solutions to meet the challenges of global urbanisation and climate change. Our focus is on delivering sustainable growth through building community capital (the different natural, financial, social and built assets that need to work in harmony to create successful neighbourhoods and communities).

The Prince’s Foundation, in partnership with Prince’s Charities Canada, is expanding its activities to Canada. Our plan is to work with industry, government and civil society to make land development projects that are both profitable and liveable by investing in quality urbanism.

From May 13-15, 2013, PFBC in partnership with PCC held a professional symposium in Toronto to facilitate a conversation about investing in quality urbanism in the context of global urbanization and climate change.  Oriented to the land development, design and planning audience, the symposium introduced professionals, land developers, government representatives and civil society organizations to the sustainable urbanism ethos of HRH The Prince of Wales and the activities of his Foundation.

In addition a public lecture was held to engage the broader community in learning about the philosophy and activities of the Foundation and its President, HRH The Prince of Wales. It included a keynote lecture on “Sustainable Urbanism in an age of globalization and climate change”, as well as a short film about the Foundation.
