The EcoDistricts Summit is where Community and Urban Leaders Come Together to Reimagine Cities — From the Neighborhood Up.
On October 17-18, the Summit is heading to Minneapolis-St. Paul — cities with a rich history of innovation in sustainable urban regeneration. This is demonstrated in the region's robust transit system, waterways, park system, neighborhood solar installations, revitalized former industrial districts and brownfield redevelopments. Yet at the same time, Minneapolis and St. Paul are home to some of the greatest racial disparities in the country. 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.
