Neighborhoods For All

WE BELIEVE THAT WHEN WE PRIORITIZE POSITIVE OUTCOMES IN EQUITY, RESILIENCE AND CLIMATE PROTECTION

We Build Vibrant, Thriving Places Where All Can Work and Live

Within every neighborhood (or district) lies the opportunity to design truly innovative, scalable solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing city makers today: income, education and health disparities; blight and ecological degradation; the growing threat of climate change; and rapid urban growth.

EcoDistricts is advancing a new model of urban development to empower just, sustainable, and resilient neighborhoods. The Protocol and EcoDistricts Certified guide city makers to take a collaborative, holistic, neighborhood-scale approach to community design to achieve rigorous, meaningful performance outcomes that matter to people and planet.

EcoDistricts aims to mobilize, empower and accelerate sustainable and equitable urban development leadership throughout North America and beyond.

  • Everybody – regardless of class, race, age, religion, gender identity, or sexual orientation – deserves to live in healthy, safe, connected and vibrant neighborhoods
  • Economic opportunity, community well-being, and ecological health are fundamental ingredients for sustainable neighborhoods and cities
  • Neighborhood sustainability requires a new model for action – rooted in collaboration and greater inclusion – to co-create innovative district-scale projects
  • Rigorous, consistent and transparent reporting in the areas of governance, environmental, and social performance is fundamental to effectively promote and manage long-term sustainability
  • Social equity, inclusion and democracy are essential to sustainable neighborhood development
