In light of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, its impact on travel restrictions, and the physical distancing requirements through 2021, the Ecocity 2021 World Summit Scientific Committee has decided to hold the Summit as a fully online virtual experience. To facilitate the technical aspects of that transition, the 14th Ecocity World Summit will take place between the 22nd and 24th of February 2022.

We are currently working on readjusting the wide range of scientific and creative sessions, market talks, and workshops that will be engaging for all those of you interested in BiodiverCity, Circular City, Healthy City, and Resilient City.

For a quick overview of the program, please refer to the Programme at a Glance.
For detailed information about our speakers, abstract submitters, and moderators, please refer to the Interactive Programme.
