City Makers. Unite.
Around the world, more people live in cities than ever before. How we live in cities is one of the great challenges of our time.
Our new name, EcoDistricts (formerly Portland Sustainability Institute), sums up our shared vision for creating sustainable cities from the neighborhood up. Our larger scope is designed to better serve you, the growing number of innovative practitioners and policymakers who are making a demonstrable impact in your communities and helping to grow the global green neighborhood movement.
Urban development leaders of all stripes, from mayors to universities to affordable housing providers, see EcoDistricts as the powerful way to address many of their pressing challenges, from climate change to neighborhood degradation. In response, we’re creating a convening, advocacy, technical assistance and research platform to inform and drive EcoDistrict innovation - strategic in nature, collaborative in approach and practical in application.
At EcoDistricts you’ll find people, tools, services and training to help cities and urban development practitioners create the neighborhoods of the future — resilient, vibrant, resource efficient, and just.
Thank you for your support and your participation in the EcoDistricts movement. See you in the neighborhood.
