Filed under: Events presentations

The Summit programme was organised around six interconnecting themes that explore leading edge research and showcase practical solutions that contribute to the development and management of ecocities. All speakers presented lessons from their specific area of expertise and explained how their work relates to the broad range of issues that are integrally related in the ecocity concept. Special crosscutting panels focused on the interconnections between several themes to offer a holistic view of Ecocity principles. Examples include: design of living buildings in sustainable communities; new technology for eco-infrastructure such as waste to energy facilities; planning solutions for ecomobility; economic strategies to sustain ecocities; and citizen commitment and empowerment. Abstracts of all oral presentations are available online. Content from all presentation sessions was captured in audio or video format. Details will be provided soon regarding how to access these recordings. Individual presenters’ powerpoint and slide presentations are not available through the conference web site. However, a post-conference edited volume is being compiled with presenters at the Summit being invited to present papers for consideration in a book on ecocities.
