Pat Gordon


Director, Sustainable Cities International Network

Sustainable Cities International is a registered not for profit organization based in Vancouver, Canada. Launched in 1993, the mission of Sustainable Cities is to catalyze action on urban sustainability in cities around the world.  SCI connects and mobilizes people around innovation for urban sustainability. Linking technical and social innovations, SCI helps to build capacity in cities for the shift towards a more sustainable future.

SCI facilitates an international network of over 40 cities that act as urban laboratories: adopting, testing and improving on innovations. Ideas are accelerated through sharing of experience and cities are making transformational change a reality.

With over 20 years of experience in the municipal sector, Pat has been at the forefront of innovation on long range urban sustainability planning.  Working for The City of Calgary, Pat managed the imagineCALGARY project, Calgary’s award winning, long range urban sustainability plan. Building on imagineCALGARY, Pat led the Plan It Calgary project which resulted in a sustainable, integrated land use and transportation plan for Calgary.  She has developed public sector curriculums for sustainability programs and has lectured on sustainability planning at the University of Calgary and University of BC.

Pat has a Bachelor of Science in Geography from the University of Calgary and a Masters of Science in Earth Science and the Environment from Kingston University in the UK.
