The Ecomuncipality model
The Ecomunicpality model originated in Sweden and is based on a set of sustainability principles that creates a common language to guide action. It was developed by scientists and has been used by municipalities and companies around the world for almost four decades. The Ecomunicipality concept offers a path forward for reconnecting with nature, understanding our true human needs that drive culture and economy, and discovering healthy ways to meet those needs in a sustainable and regenerative way.
Interweave with existing work
The shared framework and common language in an Ecomunicipality approach do not dictate how the community and economic revitalization is implemented locally. It rather illustrates the boundaries and guideposts that define sustainability and regeneration in Nature and Society. In this way, the model can also be implemented with existing sustainability or regenerative programs and tools.
