Social issues are, and need to be, a central part of environmental and economic sustainability efforts. Using stories of extraordinary communities across North America, Living Green showcases the social side of living green.
The book features communities that explicitly integrate social and human factors into their design and planning, and examines the impact living in these communities has on personal health, well-being and the capacity for pursuing sustainability. It includes interviews with developers, architects and residents, highlighting personal ideals and efforts to pursue a sustainable lifestyle.
The book's three parts explore:
- How community is central to sustainable living in everything from co-housing to communes.
- Communities that specifically integrate green building design components with social justice politics such as racism, poverty and urban alienation.
- Housing options geared toward mainstream living that offer individual choices to those who wish to live green.
Written for those desiring to hear a good news story, Living Green
will appeal to individuals and communities living a sustainable lifestyle, green building activists, and academics in sociology, planning and design, architecture and environmental fields.
