Welcome to the April 2011 edition of Ecocities Emerging, an initiative of Ecocity Builders and the International Ecocity Conference Series.
I was in Montreal recently to assist with preparations for the 9th International Ecocity Conference, Ecocity World Summit 2011. I arrived back full of enthusiasm and expectation. It’s going to be a history-making conference, and we hope you’ll be joining us.
If you’ve been thinking about attending, you’ll want to know that in honor of Earth Day, Ecocity World Summit is partnering with Earth Day Québec to offer a special discounted conference rate on April 19-21. Please visit the conference website for details
The following is a welcome message from Ecocity World Summit 2011 Conference Co-Convenors Jayne Engle-Warnick and Luc Rabouin, and Program Committee Co-Chairs David Brown and Louis Drouin.
We are delighted to invite you to attend the Ecocity World Summit 2011, to be held August 22-26 in Montréal.
What are those at the forefront of Ecocity thought, practice, policy and implementation saying about the issues that are important to you? Come join us to take part in dialogue and action to shape the future of urban areas – where most of the world’s people now live – into ecologically-based, people-centered Ecocities.
