CNN currently have a fascinating feature called "JUST IMAGINE…what will life be like in 2020?” on their site.
It includes a feature on the inspiring Majora Carter of Sustainable South Bronx, who I first learned about though Duncan McFadzean’s What’s your point caller? blog at this post. Thanks for the heads up on this, Duncan!
There’s also piece on Community from Worldchanging’s Alex Steffen.
…a lot of good stuff to dig into in this feature, which means you may need to keep going back to revisit it.
If this kind of eco and urban renewal stuff floats your boat, you might also be interested in The High Line in NYC – an initiative to turn the historic High Line rail structure into a one-of-a-kind recreational amenity: an elevated public park cutting though a district in the city, above street level. I’m all for greening the city – makes sense to me.
