Alex believed in a future where cities would play a vital role in maintaining and rebuilding our natural systems while being thriving, safe, and inspiring places to live. He was Professor of Urban Sustainability Governance and Innovation at the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS) in Montreal, and co-founder of ecoHackMTL. Alex was honoured to be a Trudeau Scholar (2007) and could not have achieved such a high level of academic success without the Foundation’s support.
