The Montréal Urban Ecology Center (MUEC) is a non-profit organization created in 1996 by citizens committed to transforming their community. It proposes practices and policies to create ecological, democratic and healthy cities. Our mission, vision and values make MUEC a key player in the transformation of public space by and for citizens.
The Centre broadcasts and applies its city on a human scale expertise centered on the philosophy of urban ecology.
We are a democratic organization that contributes to the development of the community and the enhancement of public space as a place of citizenship and sustainable change. The organization of our activities is based on a diverse ecosystem and is guided by strong convictions and values.
We mobilize citizens and public partners in favor of the city on a human scale through inspiring projects, and deploy its social economy component to locally equip the communities and municipalities in Montréal, Québec and Canada.
