The ECOCITY World Summit 2017 will provide an outstanding opportunity to strengthen understanding of the unprecedented ecological challenges facing cities all around the world.

This program provides an initial overview of the impressive array of leading urban researchers, policy makers and practitioners who will be gathering in Melbourne to share their expertise and experience.
