The International Ecocity Conference Series brings together the key innovators, decision makers, technologists, businesses and organizations shaping the conversation around ecological and sustainable city, town and village design, planning and development. We intend to put these issues on the economic and environmental agenda for 2008 and beyond.
Ecocity World Summit 2008 Themes
• People: population, health, equity, and access
• Nature: protecting and restoring the planet’s living systems and agricultural lands
• Sustainable Development: land use, transportation, architecture and infrastructure
• Economies & Technologies: building the supporting markets, businesses and technologies
• Incentives & Support Structures: role of government, organizations, institutions and individuals
The time to act is now. Life-threatening global environmental problems and limitations on resource consumption demand a restructuring of cities and transportation systems worldwide for long-term energy efficiency and conservation. Concerned citizens in every community - in every city, town and village - must get involved in formulating and implementing new land use and transportation policies and practices, preserving agricultural lands and open space, and reclaiming natural habitat.
