What it's all about

Are you tired of seeing all the climate doom and instead, you crave a vision for the amazing ecotopia world we do want?

Hello! Katie Patrick here 👋🌱, founder of ECOPIA and creator of the artworks.

I make artworks about how I think cities should work: ecologically integrated, covered in plants, and car-free. You can use these artworks to make your home a canvas for positive change. 

I them myself using MidJourney AI and Photoshop.

ECOPIA is about building the world we want. No diluting. No taking it slow. Just boldly articulating the incredible ecotopia future we want and clearly taking action to make it happen.

Environmental imagination matters.

When we collectively imagine a world where ecological design is core, we're setting our psychology for high-energy action, amazing ideas, and the tenacity to bring them to life.

Seeing the future you are working, seeing your goal, is essential to keep your positive energy up to overcome the daily obstacles we fight as environmentalists. 



I'm an environmental engineer and "Fitbit for the Planet" designer. I apply data, behavioral psychology, and game design techniques to environmental problems in a way that sharply taps into people's motivational core.

I've worked with NASA JPL, Stanford University, UNEP, Google, the European Commission, University of California, Magic Leap, and Institute for the Future and my work has been featured in Vogue, BBC, Forbes, Radio National, Cosmopolitan, and Wired. I give guest lectures on environmental behavior design at universities around the world.

If you are working on activating change, you should read by book "How to Save the World — How to Make Changing the World the Greatest Game We've Ever Played." 

I feel there's a zeitgeist brewing for a new signature of what the environmental movement is about. We're craving a new style that is relentlessly focused on solutions instead of problems - a new kind of movement that shares big ecological goals that don't sound like restrictions but are captivating enough to inspire a generation.
