Northern communities or “winter cities” have great opportunities to mitigate negative effects of the winter season while reinforcing the many positive aspects to create a vibrant, sustainable and livable environment for a prosperous future.
Our mission is to provide information, resources and networking opportunities for those who desire to make northern communities more livable and sustainable.
The goal of the Winter Cities Institute is to be the best source for information, research, reports, plans and news from around the northern world, focusing on how to make the best of the winter season.
Our membership includes architects, planners, engineers, elected and appointed city officials, economic developers, and community activists interested in learning new approaches and exchanging success stories.
This site offers a vast collection of materials about winter cities. Aselection of resources is provided at no cost, however, membership provides access to the large library of the Winter Cities Institute.
