I've written 15 small pages of notes while reading this book, I highly recommend it as it covers lots of areas, and gives lots of examples of what people are doing in different parts of the world to help with this problem.
Only two examples:
Planet Durum - U of California, build a bio-region, started in 1970, "Living-in-place" as in re-inhabitation, that's being fully alive in and with a place...
Happy Planet index: (HPI) 2009 Living better using less, to live longer, healthier, and more fulfilling lives in a sustainable ways. By 2030 = 30 billion people here, have to develop community gardens, mild exercises, met others, and eat healthy locally.
Some times not new, but more of us have to get on board now!!!
Keep smiling !!!
