9781550922691: Simplicity: Notes, stories and exercises for developing unimaginable wealth

Sustainability may seem like one more buzzword, and cities and towns like the last places to change, but this book provides inspiring examples of communities that have made dramatic changes toward sustainability, and explains how others can emulate their success. Chronicled in the book are towns like Overtornea, whose government operations recently became 100 per cent fossil fuel-free, demonstrating that unsustainable municipal practices really can be overhauled. Arguing that the process of introducing change -- whether converting to renewable energy or designing compact development -- is critical to success, the authors outline why well-intentioned proposals often fail to win community approval, and why an integrated approach -- not "single-issue" initiatives -- can surmount challenges of conflicting priorities, scarce resources, and turf battles.
