The birth of a great idea
The idea for the Ottawa Centre EcoDistrict started when James McNeil and Katelyn Brunskill met with Rebecca Aird and said “I think we have something for the 3i Summit”. That was back in May 2012 and was a part of a fantastic community-driven workshop that focused on how we could spread sustainability throughout Ottawa.
From that event we found a great group of people who were willing to be a part of a steering committee and we met fairly regularly until we secured funding. The rest as they say, is history.
We meet regularly and we have many ways to involve businesses, organizations and individuals in our program.
