Imagine a prosperous zero-carbon, zero-waste, non-toxic, pleasantly urban and yet leafy green community. That’s where you’ll be living in 20 years, if we do our work right. Steffen talks about Worldchanging’s forthcoming breakthrough book, Bright Green, and shows how the tools to transform our cities and suburbs into sustainably prosperous communities are already emerging, and why that transformation will leave us all better off.
Join Alex as he takes us on a tour of the sort of bold answers and innovative solutations that are redefining what’s possible in America… and what’s hopeful for the billions of people struggling for prosperity in the developing world.
