Greentopia is Creating a More Resilient Rochester.

Greentopia’s been working for years to create a more resilient Rochester. This is our story.

Green Visions – Green Community Advocacy

Our Green Visions program proves that you can “go green” and also serve and build a community.

EcoDistrict® – Green Stewardship

We’ve created the FIRST EcoDistrict in Upstate New York. How can we steward our great resources to insure a green future.

What is Greentopia?

Since 2011, Greentopia has worked to bring sustainability, resiliency and “living green” advocacy to Rochesterarians. We’ve accomplished a lot in our few short years. Interested?

Green Visions

Green Visions is a workforce development program that takes place in the JOSANA neighborhood. We uniquely train 15 youth, (18-21 years old, for 22 weeks) in how to prepare for the work world – by working on an urban cut flower farm!

High Falls Ecodistrict

The High Falls EcoDistrict is the First Registered EcoDistrict in the State of New York! The High Falls EcoDistrict is a conceptual FRAMEWORK to reimagine our community and design a VIBRANT URBAN DISTRICT which emphasizes economic, social and environmental equity. The EcoDistrict will be a model for ambitious sustainability standards grounded in EQUITY, RESILIENCE and CLIMATE PROTECTION.
