The book focuses on the ordinary localities in which people live, looking at the changing nature and role of local place communities, at the technologies (of energy, food, water, and movement) that help close local resource loops and the potential for subsidiarity in decision making down to the local level.
Written by an expert interdisciplinary team of town planners, social scientists and urban designers, it includes case studies from the UK, Denmark, Germany and the US, plus a detailed appendix listing current eco-village and eco-neighborhood schemes by country.
