Intro to EcoDistricts
Within the world of green rating systems, LEED provides a model for building-level sustainability, for single-entity controlled community developments, for campuses, and for cities, but it does not have a model for neighborhoods/districts that are undergoing major redevelopment. EcoDistricts is a way for districts and neighborhoods to guide urban development to empower just, sustainable, and resilient neighborhoods. EcoDistricts has just released a certification program to recognize those districts that have achieved the goals established through the protocol and an accreditation for people working to create and sustain EcoDistricts. This session will walk through the EcoDistrict Protocol, provide an introduction to the certification process and introduce the accreditation.
