Ecocity 2019 addresses the way humanity builds its home — its cities, towns and villages.
The Ecocity World Summit is the longest-standing international Summit that addresses building cities in balance with nature. It is a biennial event involving over 1,000 delegates from around the world. The first Summit in this series was held in Berkeley, USA in 1990 with the purpose of bringing together bright minds to share knowledge on ecological and sustainable city designs. Ecocity Builders, a nonprofit corporation, has since been convening Summits in different locations around the globe such as Abu Dhabi, UAE in 2015 and Melbourne, Australia in 2017.
This year, the Summit will be hosted by the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) in collaboration with the City of Vancouver and Tourism Vancouver at the Vancouver Convention Centre West from October 7 – 11, 2019.
Come join us at Community Day and the Community Solutions Showcase at the upcoming Ecocity World Summit [ecocity2019.com] where we are bringing solutions for lighter living to a local and global audience.
