Incubator Program

EcoDistricts Incubator Workshop Description

Dates: April 25 - April 27, 2019 | Location: The Millvale Food + Energy Hub, 112 Sherman St. Millvale, PA 15209

The Incubator is an initial introduction to the EcoDistricts Protocol. Teams that attend advance their understanding of transformational urban development. The Incubator is an opportunity for district cohorts to build cohesive leadership, develop shared knowledge, an articulated vision, and insight on how to lead a process for EcoDistrict development.

Through the Incubator program, start-up districts can gain capacity and build a team and technical knowledge to lead a process; and mature districts can address specific issues more deeply or can use their time at the incubator to align their efforts to prepare for certification. Attendees return to their districts with resources, tools, and a framework to lead and/or participate in an inclusive EcoDistrict process.
