The EcoDistricts Foundation Course will immerse attendees in the approach and tools to create EcoDistricts, a unique standard for urban and community development that puts equity, resilience, and climate protection at the heart of every decision.
The course is hosted by EcoDistricts and APA’s Sustainable Communities Division as a shoulder program for NPC18. The course is open to APA members in addition to the New Orleans community.
This course is for planners, architects, developers, community development professionals, and municipal leaders seeking to advance their skills, apply the EcoDistricts standard, and/or become an EcoDistricts Accredited Professional.
