The Ecocity World Summit 2022 took place February 22 – 24, 2022. It is the longest running event on ecocities in the world, and provides the tools to rebuild and bring balance to urban ecosystems. The Summit hosted about 500 attendees from 65 different countries.
The Summit takes place every two years in a different city. BCIT hosted the last Ecocity World Summit in Vancouver, BC, in 2019, from which the Centre for Ecocities was created as a legacy initiative. The event went fully online after a pandemic related postponement from its original 2021 dates.
The 2022 event was hosted by Delft University with support from the keeper of the Ecocity World Summit series, Ecocity Builders. The following ecocity topics were presented at this year’s Summit by Centre team members and colleagues at BCIT.
- Presenter: Cora Hallsworth, Centre for Ecocities Manager of Municipal Programs
- Presenter: Owen Anderchek, Student, Department of Computing, BCIT School of Computing & Academic Studies
Registered participants are able to access all session recordings until May 24, 2022.
The next Ecocity World Summit will be held in London, England from June 6-8, 2023.
