Description - Choosing a Sustainable Future by Liz Walker

We all want a sustainable future, but what does it look like, and how do we get there? In Ithaca, NY a new culture is blossoming - one that values co-operation, local production, environmental stewardship, social justice and creativity. Ithaca is showing the way to meet the challenges of the day with a wide variety of practical, real-world solutions. Filled with inspiring examples, this book provides readers with a remarkable sense of possibility. Explore Ithaca's: bustling, vibrant farmers markets, overflowing with fresh, local produce; award-winning community credit union that triples the savings of low-income people; flagship college sustainability programs; pioneering alternative transportation programs, such as Ithaca Carshare; and, innovative efforts by coalitions of local business, university, government and activists to create transformation in areas as diverse as green building, city planning, health and wellness, and honoring cultural diversity. Taken together, these examples of citizen engagement are a taste of what life could be like in a sustainable city of the future. In a time of overwhelming economic, social and environmental crises, this book provides a quiet, authoritative voice of hope.
