Our big news item: We just launched our new website! We hope you will take a few minutes to take a look. http://www.ecocitybuilders.org
Our new site makes it easier to learn about our mission and programs. Our sincere thanks to Diana Divecha for sponsoring our website project and to Design Action Collective for creating the design. We like the new clean and light appearance, we hope you do too! Most of all, we’ll be able to build up this site to become a real resource for the international ecocity community of students and practitioners. Keep checking back as we continue to upload all kinds of useful information that has been heretofore tucked away in various files, CDs, DVDs and computer drives, just waiting for an opportunity to be properly posted and filed onto our website.
There are many more resources out there, and we’d very much appreciate your help in sending us ecocity related links, papers, presentations and project information.
Our hosts in Montreal are gearing up for the next International Ecocity Conference to convene in August 2011. The Call for Papers will be issued very soon. If you want to get onto the conference direct mailing list and receive conference mailings, please sign up through the Ecocity 2011 conference website.
I will be teaching a class on The Ecological City at the University of California Berkeley Extension in San Francisco starting in early October. No prior experience necessary. Link to more information here.
Finally, thank you for your continued interest in our work. We hope you’ll consider getting more involved, whether it be by becoming a member, making a donation, volunteering or interning with us. Our cool new website has lots of information about how to Get Involved.
