Review for Ecocity Builders, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I want to thank Kirstin Miller for speaking to my Environmental Issues class (ESPM 10) at Cal on April 1, 2010. The 150 students are learning about urban environments and consumerism, and their environmental impacts. Kirstin gave a truly excellent and exciting talk on how urban to rethink urban environments, providing excellent local examples and case studies.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I was fortunate to bring in professionals with real world experience to talk to my students, inspire them, and (I think) motivate some of them to both volunteer work in ecocities as well as careers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

more forcefully drive a truly common sense (and economically viable) type of urban development. Ecocity Builders ideas not only will make peoples lives better, but it should be able to generate jobs and a stronger social structure for communities.
