Our region faces urgent challenges which cannot be solved by any singular entity.
District PGH is a collaborative of local organizations working to accelerate neighborhood and district-scale sustainable development that promotes climate resilience and equity in the greater Pittsburgh region. District PGH will work with communities, professionals, and academics to research and assess, scale adoption of projects and initiatives, advocate for resources and policy, and organize convenings that forward the practice of ecodistricts in our region. Current members, including New Sun Rising, Green Building Alliance, Sustainable Pittsburgh, The Forbes Funds, and evolveEA have committed to collectively implement the following strategies:
District PGH will perform assessments and provide research to make the case
that all development should be sustainable development.
District PGH will provide technical assistance to increase planning initiatives
and for the implementation of sustainable developments.
District PGH will promote regional, cross sectorial partnerships and learning
between community members, academics, and professionals.
District PGH will increase awareness of successful models and advocate
for policy change and investments at the municipal, county, and state level.
