A new model of Urban Re-Generation: making resilient, sustainable and socially just neighborhoods

In this lecture you’ll discover a new framework to transform existing neighborhoods through the lenses of Equity, Resilience and Climate Change to prepare a roadmap and structure neighborhood teams for how to move forward.  This overview explores a variety of approaches, including district scale energy, smart infrastructure,  smart cities, community health and urban interventions using the framework of the EcoDistricts Protocol.  You’ll discover how to connect social issues, such as social equity, affordability and health, to development issues, such as infrastructure, energy and green building.
