Around the world, more people live in cities than ever before. How we live in cities is one of the great challenges of our time. The CEO of EcoDistricts, Rob Bennett, will lead a town hall meeting at Spelman and share how neighborhoods across North America are working together across the public, private and civic sectors to achieve their goals for becoming a more socially just and ecologically sustainable district.

With so much change and growth scheduled to happen in Atlanta in the coming years, it is important that we work together to achieve a unified vision for a just, sustainable and resilient Atlanta for everyone.

EcoDistricts intends to reimagine the AUC, English Avenue and Vine City district from the ground up. Attend the town hall meeting on Monday, March 9, from 6 - 8 p.m. to make your voice heard.

About EcoDistricts

EcoDistricts is creating a powerful vision and collaboration platform to support the burgeoning marketplace of district-scale sustainability ideas and action. We focus on urban regeneration solutions that integrate smart and sustainable infrastructure, high performance green buildings and robust community engagement and action. We emphasis the “doing” by helping project teams and civic entrepreneurs break down silos, unleash creative solutions, recognize the collective power that exists within neighborhoods, and prioritize the needs of our communities, with a special emphasis on the most undeserved.

EcoDistricts' vision is simple yet ambitious - just sustainable and resilient cities and neighborhoods for all.

Today, we’re at the heart of a growing network of city makers—urban planners, designers, public officials, community activists, entrepreneurs, researchers, investors and others—who are cultivating positive, community-driven change one neighborhood at a time. To focus and amplify the collective impact of these efforts, we spearhead research, create resources, facilitate cross-pollination, and disseminate emerging best practices.
