Ecocity Phoenix is a group for discussing and creating community activism for sustainable urban development or Ecocities. In sustainability we look at systems and feedback loops. If we want to solve the major problems facing mankind, we need to look at the big picture and take a whole systems approach. Cities are mankind's largest creation by far. They have allowed for immense progress in all aspects of civilization because it allowed humans to come together and share ideas, resources, culture, etc... Cities are the reason we have progressed so much, as well as the reason we have destroyed our precious planet earth. If we are to solve the world's growing number of problems, we need to redesign our cities for humans, not cars. We need three dimensional, diverse, walkable cities that embrace each regions climate and culture. In order to take on this great endeavor we need to first create awareness and discussion. This group aims to be that discussion and eventually action. Please join us in this worthwhile journey!
To gather like minded people and build an Ecocity movement in the Phoenix area. Discussing, sharing ideas, organizing, and transforming Phoenix to an Ecocity for the rest of the world to replicate.
