AIA Central Valley, 1400 S Street Suite 100, Sacramento

Presented by AIACV Committee on the Environment & SMUD


To foster the vision of just, resilient and sustainable cities, from the neighborhood up, Eco Districts has created the Eco Districts Protocol: a framework for achieving people-centered, economically vibrant, planet-loving neighborhood sustainability. Launched globally in April 2016, the Protocol was developed over five years with support from 100+ global advisors and testing across 11 districts in 8 North American cities. Powered by the EcoDistricts Protocol, EcoDistricts Certified is a powerful district-scale performance framework that focuses on four core phases to drive rigorous outcomes across equity, resilience and climate protection. This seminar is an introduction to the EcoDistrict Protocol and Certification process.

About the Presenter: Eric Corey Freed As one of the leading green architects in the world, Eric is an indispensable consultant to some of the largest developers and real estate companies in the world.
