Ecocity Peer Network Webinar Series
This was the first webinar for the Ecocity Peer Network held on November 2, 2020.
Learn about the Centre for Ecocities, and our work helping cities find ways to lighten humanity’s ecological footprint and live within the planet’s ecological carrying capacity.
The webinar focused on the ecoCity Footprint Tool – and how its use helps a city assess its energy and materials dependence relative to climate stability thresholds and ecological carrying capacity.
We shared our learning about the top actions a city and its citizens can take to close the sustainability gap, through urban restructuring and lifestyle changes related to food, buildings, consumables and wastes, transportation, and water.
We profiled our work with 10 BC communities and about our future plans to continue contributing applied research, skills and tools to support the creation of Ecocities.
We also talked about how the work of Centre is leveraging and contributing to BCIT’s world renowned research in building science, technology and ecological restoration.
