EcoCity Builders is one of the most inspiring organisations world wide. It has the theory and and the practical skills to convert our sprawling cities into ecological cities. It's outreach includes under-developed and over-developed countries. If we continue to make cities in the same old way and do not make our cities in balance with nature, then the current climate change will send humans the way of the dinosaurs. EcoCity Builders does more than any other NGO world wide to educate people for the future. My involvement goes back to 1990.

I have volunteered with Ecocity Builders since 1990 when I attended the First International Ecocity Conference convened by Richard Register. He is a visionary who sees hundreds of years into the future and, at the same time, delights in the smallest detail of a crimson autumn leaf or sparkling green dragonfly in the here and now. It is increasingly urgent that we change the way we live on the planet. Ecocity Builders is demonstrating how we can work in partnership with nature to build beautiful, livable human settlements that nurture our souls.

I first became involved with EcoCity Builders after taking a UC Berkeley Extension class taught by Kirstin Miller who is the ED of EcoCity. I was instantly hooked and was glad for opportunities to do more. The important thing about EcoCity as a non-profit is that they are not just a

Over the past four years, I have been able to see Ecocity Builders grow from the living room of an apartment to a downtown office complex. I began working on a project to map relative vitality in Oakland as part of a course assignment. This project eventually received funding and some of the policy recommendations are being considered by the Mayor. More importantly, partners in West Oakland are actively implementing ways to improve the vitality near the BART and historic Central Station. The Executive Director and President have a great deal of energy and have been promoting Ecocities for over 20 years.

help finance a Ecocity demonstration project in an urban village what would be not only carbon neutral, but gentrification neutral.

Ways to make it better...

I had been paid more. They have great ideas, little money and many professionals who donate time pro bono to keep the ecocity vision alive.
