Green Vancouver to Welcome ECOCITY World Summit

The 2019 ECOCITY World Summit will be held in Vancouver, at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT). Set to take place in October 2019 and based out of the  Vancouver Convention Centre, over 1000 delegates are expected to attend the summit, thought-leaders, decision makers, sustainable business owners, and green researchers from over 30 countries being amongst them.

Held every two years since 1990, the summit deals with the complex challenges facing humanity in a rapidly urbanising world. Under the theme “Socially Just and Sustainable Cities”, the conference will aim to officially confirm the International Ecocity Framework and Standards (IEFS) document, which provides a vision for an ecologically-restorative human civilization as well as a practical methodology for assessing and guiding progress towards the goal.
