No wars, no cars: Ecocities according to Richard Register
Richard Register is founder of Ecocity Builders and author of "Ecocities -- Rebuilding Cities in Balance with Nature."  For more than thirty years he has been initiating local projects, pushing establishment buttons and working with environmentalists and developers. He travels incessantly and has circled the planet dozens of times speaking about ecological design, but it's been a decade since Register has visited New York.

What is an ecocity?

Ecocities will be exciting and rewarding places to live, communities that will foster humanity's creative and compassionate evolution on a healthy Earth.

Richard Register believes we can build them and he thinks we already know how.

What is 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.
