The annual EcoDistricts Summit is where community and urban sustainability leaders come to re-imagine cities — from the neighborhood up.
This October, the Summit is coming to Atlanta, Georgia — a dynamic, hard charging, and ever changing city. It is a city working to re-imagine itself after decades of sprawl and uneven investment that has led to some of the nation’s worst economic and racial inequalities. Today, the city that helped birth the American Civil Rights movement is on the cusp of a significant breakthrough in urban regeneration fueled by a new generation of leaders that are harnessing the city’s civic entrepreneurism, thriving arts and culture community, and dedication to community-based placemaking. Atlanta is poised for an EcoDistricts revolution.
The Summit is a participatory gathering to advance sustainable, equitable, and resilient neighborhood- and district-scale projects. Together, we’ll dig in and unpack Atlanta’s urban redevelopment legacy, explore innovative projects, and uncover important breakthroughs. Attendees will engage with speakers and subject matter, sharing knowledge and developing solutions to take back to their communities.
