Christine Mondor Selected to Join Ecodistricts Global Protocol Advisory Committee
Ecodistricts.org, a Portland, Oregon based non-profit, is convening the Global Protocol Advisory Committee. The Global Protocol Advisory Committee will discuss goals, milestones and deliverables for establishing a broad adoption of ecodistrict planning and sharing of knowledge. Ecodistricts.org holds an annual summit to promote sustainable urban design principles. Christine Mondor presented at the summit in Boston in November 2013, was part of a Pittsburgh team at the 2014 Ecodistricts Incubator in Portland, Oregon, and will be presenting this fall at the Ecodistricts Summit in Washington, DC.
Ecodistricts.org describes the Protocol as follows:
The Protocol is a platform for building district governance and leadership, a framework for unleashing innovation, a system for encouraging and rewarding leadership, and a blueprint for creating just, sustainable and resilient cities and neighborhoods for all. Focusing on process and upstream performance, the EcoDistricts Protocol addresses many common challenges that have emerged in our efforts to regenerate our communities successfully. This includes the lack of rigorous project governance, interdisciplinary goal-setting, fragmented project assessment processes, and a continued reliance on traditional funding models.
