The Ecocity World Summit was held in Nantes, France at the end of September, 2013. Organized by the NGO Ecocity Builders, the week-long event was designed to facilitate exchanges among local, regional and governmental decision-makers, researchers and the civil society, and bring together all the different disciplines on sustainable cities.
IEE Executive Director Ed Church was asked to make a presentation at the conference, based on some of the findings of the research we did for Arup, called the Cities and People Project. Although unable to attend, Ed made the presentation via video. Session organizers reported great interest in the video, and in the research.
