GRAB YOUR TICKETS TO THE ECODISTRICT'S SUMMIT

THE ECODISTRICTS SUMMIT IS WHERE COMMUNITY AND URBAN LEADERS COME TOGETHER TO REIMAGINE CITIES – FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD UP.

This November, EcoDistricts will welcome over 400 urban changemakers to Pittsburgh to co-design the neighborhoods of the future.

In celebration of the 10th Annual Summit, EcoDistricts is partnering with the City of Pittsburgh and regional leaders to bring the Summit to one of the most dynamic cities in the U.S. Pittsburgh is ofter cited as one of the world’s most dramatic “turn around” stories – a region rich in history and economic might that has reemerged from the collapse of the American steel manufacturing industry to rise again as a center of place-based sustainability and urban vibrancy. It is no wonder that Pittsburgh has emerged as a center of the EcoDistricts movement for over a decade.

Recap of Summit 20183 days, a bonus research forum, world-class practitioner speakers, diverse project case studies, expert-driven workshops and hands-on mobile tours.

On October 17-18, the Summit came to Minneapolis-St. Paul. Together, over 300 attendees unpacked the cities’ history of innovation in sustainable urban regeneration and explored solutions to its deep racial disparities. The Summit featured a fantastic lineup of speakers, panelists and advisors who shared key challenged, opportunities, and diverse approaches to neighborhood- and district-scale development in Minneapolis-St. Paul and beyond. Today, these very different yet dynamic cities are on the cusp of a breakthrough in urban regeneration, fueled by a generation of leaders that are harnessing the city’s civic entrepreneurism, thriving arts and culture community, and dedication to community-based placemaking.
