Every city has a story. For each Summit experience, we build stories across more than 10 months of partnership development to explore on-the-ground innovation, regional leaders and local challenges. In 2017, we travel to Atlanta, GA.
One of the most dynamic cities in the U.S., Atlanta is grappling with the impacts of rapid, low-density growth, and its effect on the environment, mobility, and economic opportunity. We can't wait to begin unpacking Atlanta's unique story, its history as the center of the Civil Rights Movement, its progress across several areas critical to building vibrant, people-centered neighborhoods, and its cutting edge innovators who are leading global conversations that we all need to hear.
Please visit this page regularly as we make these stories available in the lead up to the EcoDistricts Summit in Atlanta, October 11-12, 2017.
