EcoCity World Summit 2017

There’s only two days to go before the 2017 EcoCity World Summit and we couldn’t be more excited.

The EcoCity Summit series, held every two years since 1990, has developed into one of the most globally significant forums for addressing the complex challenges facing humanity in a rapidly urbanising world.

ECOCITY 2017: Changing Cities: Resilience and Transformations is being hosted by the University of Melbourne, Western Sydney University, the Government of Victoria and the City of Melbourne.

The 2017 Summit will bring together a diverse mix of researchers, policy makers and citizens with a common focus on identifying and creating pathways to more sustainable, resilient and equitable cities.

An impressive faculty of keynote and featured speakers have been arranged to lead the discussions at the Summit with The Hon. Al Gore, Former US Vice President and Chair of The Climate Reality Project, acting as the principal speaker.

The Summit will address the unprecedented ecological, economic, political and cultural challenges – and opportunities – facing the world’s cities through a focus on six major themes: Climate and energy transformations, food and water security, smart cities for people, healthy and caring cities, culturally vibrant cities, and governance, infrastructure 
and finance.

There’s still time to register, head to the website to check out the full program.

If you’re unable to attend the Summit there are also a few community events that you can participate in.
