2019 EcoDistricts Summit

In celebration of the 10th Annual Summit, EcoDistricts is partnering with the City of Pittsburgh and regional leaders to bring the Summit to one of the most dynamic cities in the U.S. Pittsburgh is often cited as one of the world’s most dramatic “turn around” stories – a region rich in history and economic might that has reemerged from the collapse of the American steel manufacturing industry to rise again as a center of place-based sustainability and urban vibrancy. It is no wonder that Pittsburgh has emerged as a center of the EcoDistricts movement for over a decade.

To celebrate our 10 years, we’re excited to announce that Liz Ogbu will keynote the Summit Nov 4-5 at the August Wilson Center. We couldn’t have thought of a better person to inspire the EcoDistricts community. Liz is often described as one of the most influential designers, urbanists, and social innovators of our time, with a focus on social and spatial innovation in challenged urban environments. Through her multidisciplinary design and innovation consultancy, she collaborates with communities around the world to leverage the power of design to catalyze sustained social impact. With Pittsburgh’s deep roots in neighborhood-scale development and continued commitment to equity and inclusion, and Liz's unique blend of empathy and human-centered, cross-disciplinary design, you don't want to miss this year's Summit.


We are looking for talented speakers to join Liz in our summit program.


EcoDistricts encourages industry leaders, practitioners, planners, architects, and other urban professionals to submit engaging, interactive and thought-provoking session proposals that will captivate the Pittsburgh audience. The 2019 Call for Proposals is open now through March 15.
