Founded in 1992, Ecocity Builders is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reshaping cities for the long-term health of human and natural systems.

We envision the global rebuilding of cities and towns based on ecological principles for long-term cultural vitality and health of the Earth’s biosphere.

We are the keepers of the longest running conference series on the subject of ecocities. The next conference will be held in Abu Dhabi, UAE, October 11-13 2015. Register now!

We partner with local community groups and organizations to initiate and build demonstration projects, pieces of the ecocity and are consultants to projects both locally and globally.

Ecocity Builders is known for its education and outreach. We regularly provide workshops and design charrettes, in addition to books and articles for various media outlets.
