Post-Carbon Cities of Tomorrow, POCACITO, in the U.S. redefines the urban sustainable development process by engaging diverse perspectives in the conversations about local issues and re-imagining international cooperation. The resulting transatlantic relationships serve to affirm the potential of cities to lead the global sustainability movement. The workshop aims to create opportunities for citizen-led and community-oriented innovation for a sustainable circular economy, looking at lessons and examples from Europe and Pittsburgh, then engaging in a group design process. Workshop participants include citizens, city planners, local government officials, and organizations committed to the vibrancy of their communities.
This event is co-hosted by the European Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh. Students of the University of Pittsburgh can apply for free participation via the ESC. POCACITO in the US is an initiative of Ecologic Institute in Washington, DC, and funded in large part by the Delegation of the European Union to the United States’s Getting to Know Europe program.
