Feb 2014 | 2030 Districts
Architecture 2030’s 2030 Districts initiative has achieved great success in helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions from buildings at a district scale in five cities, showing the benefits of building owners, operators, and occupants working together to share resources, leverage financing, and implement collective strategies.
There is recognition among urban sustainability leaders that the district is an important scale for addressing sustainability, including reducing carbon emissions, improving our natural systems, and building community action.
One of partner organizations, EcoDistricts, shares this vision. They too are aimed at accelerating sustainability at a district level, and use a model based upon strong stakeholder engagement and district governance to develop projects that reduce ecological footprint, promote community action and civic entrepreneurship, and generate green jobs.
In May this year they’re presenting their third annual Incubator – a three-day executive training program that prepares urban sustainability and development leaders to develop an EcoDistrict project in their community.
To find out if the Incubator might be right for you, or just to learn more about the program, you can check out an informational webinar for the 2014 Incubator on Thursday, February 6 at 12 pm PST, hosted by EcoDistricts.
