We’re going to hear Richard Register…
…and we think it would be great if you came too!
He’s speaking this Wednesday (March 31st) at 7:30pm at The Commons (388 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn). The title of his presentation is “No wars, no cars: Ecocities according to Richard Register.” Buy tickets ($15) here. And if you haven’t done so already, sign up for the Cooperative Evolution mailing list, to hear about more events like this.
What’s an Ecocity?
“It’s an urban settlement where residents live a good life while using minimal natural resources. Buildings make best use of sun, wind and rainfall. Natural habitat corridors foster biodiversity and give residents access to nature. Food and other goods are sourced from within the bioregion. Most residents walk or cycle to work, and take public transportation when they need to travel further. Car-sharing allows people to use a car only when needed. The labor-intensive economy maintains full employment and minimizes energy and water inputs. Goods are designed for reuse, remanufacture, and recycling; and production is designed to reuse by-products and minimize transport.”
Sounds great to RR! Let’s make it happen!
