In 1996, IBS hosted an Eco-Cities forum in Charlottetown that attracted planners, academics and activists from North America, Europe and Africa. The following year IBS co-director Nancy Willis, was the official reporter at the International Eco-cities Conference in Yoff, Senegal.
Charlottetown is now in a position of having to put forward a sustainablility plan, required for
federal infrastructure finding. All municipalities on PEI are supposed to have this completed by April 2009. Doug Deacon, Sustainable Development Coordinator, for Stratford, PEI will be facilitate discussion on creating a, ‘Green-City' Plan for Charlottetown.
