Ecocity World Summit
22 to 26 April 2008
San Francisco, United States
The Ecocity World Summit will address the ecological city, town and village
from the perspectives of people, nature, sustainable development, economies
and technologies, and incentives and support structures.
Join together with an international community of inspired change-makers who
are putting their time and talents to work addressing crucial problems of
the world's environment with thoughtful and long-range solutions that are
truly sustainable, ecologically healthy and socially just.
The time to act is now. Life-threatening global environmental problems and
limitations on resource consumption demand a restructuring of cities and
transportation systems worldwide for long-term energy efficiency and
conservation. Concerned citizens in every community - in every city, town
and village - must get involved in formulating and implementing new land use
and transportation policies and practices, preserving agricultural lands and
open space, and reclaiming natural habitat.
The deadline for abstracts/proposals is 1 October 2007.
