At the 2012 UN Earth Summit for Sustainable Development Rio+20 there was an initiative to offer “many great opportunities for people from all over the world to come together, build bridges, and draft a common path upon which all residents of this breathtakingly beautiful planet we call home can journey towards a sustainable and equitable future.” This ideal would be brought to life in the plans of Agenda 21 Ecocities.
The blueprint for “a prosperous, secure and sustainable future for people and planet” where Agenda 21 comes to life under the directives of the UN and with the cooperation of the world’s governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and private-sector corporations.
The Ecocity Builders is a non-profit organization which is a collaboration of international networks of associates that influence and actively participate in local city planning projects all across the US. Through training courses, they advocate the ecocity approach as the only way to continue in civilized society.
Through coercive conferences like the International Ecocity Conference series that is an international movement toward building locally and globally. They have created UN sustainable cities in countries like India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Brazil, Senegal, South Africa, Turkey, nine countries in Europe, Korea, and Australia.
They focus on reworking current issues to match UN Agenda 21 guidelines in planning for local cities including transportation, energy, architecture, design, natural restoration, development, planning, and advocacy.
