Ecocities Emerging

Group founded by citisven

Ecocities Emerging is a group dedicated to discussing the reshaping of cities for the long-term health of human and natural systems. "An Ecocity is a human settlement modeled on the self sustaining resilient structure and function of natural ecosystems. The ecocity provides healthy abundance to its inhabitants without consuming more (renewable) resources than it produces, without producing more waste than it can assimilate, and without being toxic to itself or neighboring ecosystems. Its inhabitants’ ecological impact reflect planetary supportive lifestyles; its social order reflects fundamental principles of fairness, justice and reasonable equity." -- Working definition adopted by Ecocity Builders and the International Ecocity Standards advisory team, 2/20/10, Vancouver, Canada.
