The Centre has a variety of publications available online including:
- Ecocities Now book
- Annual reports
- Links to research foundational to our work
- ecoCity Footprint Tool Pilot Summary Reports
The book Ecocities Now was published in 2020 with Dr. Jennie Moore as lead editor. The book showcases the ten best papers submitted for presentation at the Ecocity World Summit held in 2019 in Vancouver.
The book uses the Summit’s overarching theme and sub-themes as an organizing framework and aligns with the International Ecocity Standards that serve as a diagnostic tool to help cities assess their progress on the path to becoming ecocities.
Members of the BCIT Library can access the e-book through their account.
One Planet Scenarios
One Planet Scenarios were created for our Ecocity Peer Network members, with funding from Real Estate Foundation of BC. The scenarios identify what would be required to achieve a community-wide ecological and carbon footprint commensurate with One Planet Living.
The following research, conducted by Dr. Jennie Moore and colleagues is foundational to the work of the Centre.
