Freiburg is currently the ecological capital of Germany. This is a German TV news clip spotlighting the city's solar innovations. Again, this in comparison to the media in America? The mind boggles at how much the mainstream media in our country has kept us behind the curve. There's so many amazing innovations happening in sustainable design all around the world, and we hardly benefit from any of it. We're pretty much living in a bubble, isolated from the rest of the world's exchange of ideas and potential solutions. We need to bring the diversity of sustainable discussion going on all around the world into our own local communities.
