What is sustainability?
Sustainability of ecosystems and environments is key to survival of humans and other organisms.
- Living sustainably: reorganizing living spaces (tiny house communities, intentional communities, eco-municipalities, sustainable cities, green cities, rooftop gardening; accessible and affordable housing in balance with the environment )
- Recycling/reusing/repurposing/reducing: more results with fewer products (reducing need for raw resource extraction; individual to community lifestyle adjustments)
- Rethinking economics of green (green buildings, farm-to-table agricultural practices, permaculture, contributionism
- Linking water-food-energy in renewable, accessible, smart ways (attention to systems, geographic scale and carbon footprints--family farms to cities; free/renewable energy; all aspects of water (quantity, quality, availability, accessibility); food production and distribution)
