What is the EcoHack-a-city Initiative?

Municipalities are in a unique position to make real strides in the fight for a more sustainable future.
The EcoHack-a-City initiative is designed to strengthen the ties among stakeholders who can support this ecological transition! This fresh and inspiring series of events combines both:

A virtual public panel event that invites the members of the public to learn about local environmental issues concerning municipalities; and
An online learning-by-doing training program that brings together municipal actors and representatives from business and civic society to find original solutions to an environmental challenge experienced by our cities.

Next Theme

Six cities across Canada already agreed to host EcoHack-a-City events in 2021.
The City of Halifax hosted an event on May 17, 2022 to discuss the challenges and solutions related to the theme: Climate Resiliency Retrofits for Residential Buildings.

Are you a project lead or program manager working for a municipality, a business or a NGO and are looking to take part in the training?

Are you a citizen interested in environmental issues, especially those concerning municipalities?
