EcoDistrict Summit 2019
November 4 - November 5
Every year the EcoDistricts Summit brings together hundreds of thinkers and doers across civic, public and private sectors to explore best practices, challenges and real-world examples of equitable, resilient and sustainable development.
In celebration of the 10th Annual Summit, the national EcoDistricts team is partnering with the City of Pittsburgh and regional leaders, including evolveEA, to bring the Summit to one of the most dynamic cities in the U.S. Pittsburgh is often cited as one of the world’s most dramatic “turn around” stories – a region rich in history and economic might that has reemerged from the collapse of the American steel manufacturing industry to rise again as a center of place-based sustainability and urban vibrancy. It is no wonder that Pittsburgh has emerged as a center of the EcoDistricts movement for over a decade.
As ecodistrict planning is a key pillar in evolveEA’s work, our team will be in attendance and leading info sessions about the projects we are involved in around Pittsburgh. During the Studio Tours from 2:15 – 5:30pm on Day 1, hear from Anna Rosenblum as she describes how the Triboro Ecodistrict is addressing stormwater challenges, or listen to Elijah Hughes as he recounts the Tale of the East Busway. And if you see Christine Mondor floating around, say hello and thank her for her leadership in creating ecodistricts in Pittsburgh and organizing the event as a Summit co-chair.
Over 100 leading urban change makers will join our team in speaking and inspiring us to reimagine cities from the neighborhood up. Be part of the conversation. You don’t want to miss this impactful event. Buy your tickets now!
