Ecocity World Summit 2011 in Montréal: August 22 – 26

Over 1,000 participants representing more than 70 countries have chosen to join this path-breaking event where learning and networking opportunities abound.

We are proud to offer a rich program packed with an Opening Ceremony and reception, training workshops, 100+ concurrent sessions, keynote presentations and panels, mobile workshops, design charrettes, artistic installations, poster presentations, film screenings, a Local Food Fest, the Ecocity Expo, and a surprise announcement at the end!

The Ecocity World Summit program is organized around six interconnecting themes that explore leading edge research and showcase practical solutions that contribute to the development and management of ecocities.
