Root-Solution: Building the Ecocity

4.0 ·
3

Richard Register discusses the concept of the Ecocity: an Ecocity is a human settlement that enables its residents to live a good quality of life while using minimal natural resources. It is threaded with natural habitat corridors, to foster biodiversity and to give residents access to nature for recreation. Its food and other goods are sourced from within its borders or from nearby. The majority of its residents live within walking or cycling distance of their workplace, to minimize the need for motorized transport. The goods industry produces within an ecocity are designed for reuse, remanufacture, and recycling. The industrial processes its uses involve reuse of by-products, and minimize the movement of goods.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
