Summary
This book provides examples of communities that have made dramatic changes toward sustainability, and explains how others can emulate their success. 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. Key to success is a democratic "bottom-up" change process, and clear guiding sustainability principles such as the Natural Step framework.--From publisher description
