What is EcCoWell?
EcCoWell is about taking a holistic approach to city development, building on areas of common interest between sectors and using resources more efficiently.
The question of social, environmental, and economic sustainability is
central to EcCoWell.
EcCoWell is about:
- integrating strategies directed at a better life in cities across the areas of ecology, economy (Ec), community, culture (Co), well-being, lifelong learning (Well);
- taking a holistic approach to policies which aim at building humane cities that foster quality of life and well-being for their residents.
EcCoWell promotes integrating strategies to maximise the positive impacts on the health and educational opportunities of all citizens as well as developing the environmental and economic sustainability of the city, resulting in greater equality, social inclusion and ultimately quality of life.
