The EcoDistricts Summit is where Community and Urban Leaders Come Together to Reimagine Cities — From the Neighborhood Up.
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. 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.
Next year, we are headed to Pittsburgh to continue the work of advancing racial equity, climate resilience, and ecological design in urban and community development.
3 days, a bonus research forum, world-class practitioner speakers, diverse project case studies, expert-driven implementation skills sessions and hands-on mobile tours
The 2018 EcoDistricts Summit featured a fantastic lineup of speakers, panelists and advisors who unpacked key challenges, opportunities, and diverse approaches to neighborhood- and district-scale development in Minneapolis-St. Paul and beyond.
